CHIKOMBA – There are allegations that Headman Madamombe in Chikomba West has banned and is discouraging men from his area from getting circumcised because the practice is against his people's culture.
Efforts to get a comment from Madamombe were fruitless as his mobile was unreachable.
However, The Mirror is informed that a PSI funded circumcision exercise in the area recently, was a flop because Madamombe had mobilized people against attending the function.
It is said that Madamombe also argues that circumcision promotes prostitution and has been urging parents not to sign forms permitting their children to get circumcised.
Allegations are that headman Madamombe condemned the practice during ward 15 Independence celebrations when residents asked the nurse in charge Julien Chimbinyu who had attended the celebrations to educate them about male circumcision. Allegations are that whilst Chimbinyu was explaining the procedure to the residents, headman Madamombe condemned the practice sighting that it is against their culture.
It is alleged that he told residents that it also promotes prostitution in his area as residents will engage in unprotected sex on the guise that chances of contracting diseases are slim when they get circumcised.
Ward 15 PSI mobiliser Viola Tete could neither confirm nor deny the incident.
She said she was not around when the incident occurred. She however, said Headman Madamombe was now giving in to the practice as he had instructed her to mobilize village heads to attend a meeting over the matter on September 1 2016.
