Boy’s genitals chopped in mock circumcision

A four-year-old child has almost left his three-year- old brother without genitals after he tried to circumcise him.
The incident happened in Kamonkoli, Budaka District.
Imitating the Bagisu cultural circumcision practice commonly known as Imbalu, the two boys were seen dancing, dressed in banana leaves, but few minutes later the younger one was found lying in a pool of blood.
The four year old self-made surgeon who can not be named because he’s a minor is said to have used a sharp razor blade to cut off the fore skin of his colleague’s genitals.
The child’s parents had to rush the child to Mbale hospital for proper circumcision and medical attention.
Officials at Mbale hospital confirmed the incident saying the boy is in a stable condition.
This is an even year and the male circumcision season is on.
The legendary ceremony among the Bagisu ethnic group marks the initiation of boys into manhood.
Following the launch of the imbalu season in Bugisu region in August , President Yoweri Museveni, one of the witnesses as courageous young men face the knife in the rite of passage to adulthood, pledged to promote the cultural ceremony for tourism purposes.
