Cultural circumcision month in Kenya at this time of Corona Virus Infection

Bukusu tribe in Kenya has been practise one of their old culture for years now and it’s that time of the year when the tribe practise their most celebrated culture that it is believed to transform young men into adult.

Male circumcision usually happen when we approach August or the month of August, at this time of the month everything comes to a stop in Western Kenya because it’s one big occasion that see some of the tribe members ensure their kids travel to attend this transforming process that is believed to be changing young men into Adult. It is believed if you are circumcised under this traditional practise and by the elders in the club, you are a man enough to overcome pain because it is not done in hospital but rather at home in the presence of villagers and clans men.

The Bukusu and western region circumcision this year might expirence difficulties and in some places it will not happen for the first time in history but am sure other will ignore the situation and carry on with the practise dispute the increasing numbers of Corona virus positive cases reported.

Th government is very aware of the traditional circumcision practise that take place yearly and have advice that with the current situation it will be adviceable for it to take place at the hospital but am not sure if that will happen. If we can keep safe now and it will be hard for us to take part in our future cultural practise and I can tell you how big this practise is here in Kenya because in some place if you visit and you are of the same age of those been circumcised and you are not circumcised, you will be forcefully be circumcised and you can’t do nothing about it because you are in a wrong place at the right time.

So with the current Covid situation, the future of this very celebrated Western circumcision celebration culture matters a lot than the current practise. Their is no need to put lives at risk for something we will have more years to practise after the Corona virus is managed or gone.

God bless Kenya
