Yezingane Network calls for a Commission of Inquiry – Deaths of Boys from Traditional Male Circumcision

We urge you to support this petition by the Yezingane Network, the Children’s Sector of the South African National AIDS Council, calling for action to put to an end to the unnecessary deaths that are now synonymous with traditional male initiation. SANAC fully supports the petition. This is a timely call for an end to tragic outcomes of death, injury and disfigurement caused by a practice that is meant to usher boys and young men into a life of growth and maturity. While we are not against traditional initiation, we are concerned that this should be a safe and trusted practice that will not cut short the lives of boys and young men or result in injury.
