The Zambia Medicines Regulatory Authority has expressed concern over the rising cases of people conducting abortions at illegal clinics in Lusaka.

ZAMRA Senior Pharmaceutical Inspector Kelvin Mujelemani said in an interview that the Authority has discovered that illegal circumcision operations are being conducted at unregistered clinics in most compounds in Lusaka.

Mr Mujelemani explained that some young boys have had their private parts amputated after these illegal circumcisions have gone wrong.

“What we have discovered is that male circumcisions have become very popular due to the massive advertisements about its benefits and some unscrupulous people are now cashing in by performing these operations in their illegal drug stores,” Mr Mujelemani.

He added, “The illegal drug store owners are conniving with Pharmacists from Government hospitals and are stealing a controlled drug called Lignocaine or Lidocaine used as local anaesthetics stop pain and they are selling to these backyard drug stores to use after operations.”

Mr Mujelemani said men and boys rushing to these illegal drug stores to seek these operations are risking their lives.

He said the Authority has since intensified its inspections to close down these illegal drug stores and sensitise the public on the dangers of conducting illegal circumcisions.

  1. kwena mulifipuba, the white man lies to you ati circumcission is good and there you go advertising to the people to be circumcised. ninshi what is wrong with us kanshi. Who lied to you that circumcission is good for you? Then start removing the womens cervices, breasts in order to avoid the chances or reducing the chances of them contracting cancer. this is just some ridiculous reasoning.
    This is the whitemans way of effeminization of the males. This is a long term strategy to make all your into homosexuals. The less you feel or enjoy sex due to the loss of sensitivity, then the satisfaction for men will be found in another mans arse. The white man is crafty, he has managed to make you hate yourselves and you still trusting this cracker with his pseudo science.
    Uluse ine!!!!

    • This is the legacy of Dr Francis Manda, lying that circumcision prevents AIDS. Superstitious Zambians will believe anything, including that powercuts are caused by God. Circumcision does not stop HIV and Aids. If you have doubts, just ask people from Northwestern Province. Don’t they die from Aids? Circumcision comes with cultural beliefs about sexuality that are more important than being cut and continuing to live recklessly. Shunu is no cure; shunu is not cool.

    • It is surprising that the western countries have targeted female circumcision practised by Africans but are completely happy with male genital mutilation because Jewish traditions dominate European culture. If your ethnic traditions want you to go for shunu, please do but don’t be fooled that it is a cure for aids. Even Dr Francis Manda did not live forever. You cannot die from Aids if you control your sexuality and urges. You will die of aids if you let your circumcised shunu dickhead enter bareback into sullied pussies.

    • It’s only in Africa where people go to broke witch doctors for such services instead of reading labels on condoms and ARVs. And this has nothing to do with education. Education did not help Katele Kalumba to escape witchcraft and superstitions. Abstinence or use of condoms will protect your dickhead, not circumcision.

  7. Even “unbotched” circumcisions cause physical, sexual, and psychological harm. Do not consent, and you will not be harmed.

    I sympathise with all those boys whose parents send them to their early graves.

  9. Orthodox Jews follows a tradition known as oral suction circumcision,

    once the Rabbi has cut off the foreskin he then sucks the child’s penis? If so I cannot think of anything more despicable. Under any other circumstance this would be considered child molestation and should the Rabbi survive the brutal assault by the parents that should rightly follow such an atrocity committed on their child, the Rabbi would be chucked in jail, how do parents allow this to continue?

  10. The FORSKIN have THOUSANDS of special nerve endings. These are the MOST innervated parts of the HUMAN MALE. The parts cut off shut down a huge part of the kid’s/man’s sensory system. That can never be returned (it is shut down for good).

    It’s about time someone stood up to these wackos who still believe that the genital mutilation is an acceptable practice in the 21st century.

  11. The human mind is like a pretzel, it can be bent into almost any shape. Unlike a pretzel, once the mind is bent successfully, it will hold that shape to be normal. The bottom line is: be careful what you allow as a belief. The things you believe can wind up making a fóól of you. Sad part is, you will not be recognizing the stoopid things you do. If you need your mind bent, at least pick a decent shape, some shapes are better than others.

  12. The death and deformity caused by male circumcision in Africa can’t be ignored
    – Ally Fogg

    Eastern Cape and Limpopo provinces alone at least 419 boys have died since 2008, and more than 456,000 initiates have been hospitalised with complications.

    Deaths commonly occur through dehydration, blood loss, shock-induced heart failure or septicaemia. And there are estimated to be two total penile amputations for every death. Countless numbers of participants are left with permanent scarring or deformity. Urologists describe seeing patients whose penises have become so infected and gangrenous they literally drop off.

  13. Indeed, if God wanted our fore-skins removed, he could have done it himself. I also agree that we are a stupid pipo to keep listening to the everything muzungus say.

    Look at today’s African women for instance including ba Ester Lungu (or is it Phiri?) and even ba Proffessor Nkandu Luo; they are stuck with those thick, smelly, filthy, shiny wigs! What’s happened to the old African Hair styles like ‘BENDEKA’ or Mukule?

    • it is about illegal circumcission centres, but most of the bloggers here are condemning the whole thing of circumcission which would not have given rise to these illegal centres. So they are rightly fixing the problem by taking or attacking the root of this problem.

  15. This country, never cease to surprise me! Mr. Mujelemani isn’t alarmed by backyard circumcisions. These are illegal. Arrest the people who carry these out and deal with those who are stealing the anesthesia. This is a trend in Zambia, complaints but no solutions to problems that are identified. This mindset needs to change. Intensify inspections. There are no checks and balances in instititutions or we are never consistent in our checks.

  16. Another thing. Is ZAMRA responsible for regulating drug usage? If it is it has failed to do so. How do the workers steal and sell a controlled drug without the relevant authorities not doing anything. Much as I am loathe to say this, these are signs of a failed state where people’s morals are deeply compromised!

  17. God created me to enjoy sex. Any human efforts to try to reduce that enjoyment on me and my children is a waste of time. I would rather teach my boys cleanness and let them enjoy their marriages.
    When you reach 45 and about, it’s already a challenge to do three rounds a night or once every day for seven day, how much more when I cut?
