Thirty-three boys have died from botched circumcisions conducted during traditional initiation rites, while scores more have ended up in hospital with mutilated penises, a health official said on Thursday.
Scores of other boys were in hospital after circumcisions gone wrong, with two gangrenous penises amputated in hospital this week, he added.
But they still flock to initiation schools in the bush, because the faster and less painful medical method in hospital can result in a lifetime of social rejection.

You, as a women, saying that uncircumcised is not appealing just gave me the right to say if those breasts aren't augmented and bouncy, no need to apply. / sarcasm
The majority of the world is uncircumcised, and the rate of circumcision in Canada and the US are dropping, so get used to it.
Genital mutilation of boys is just as barbaric as genital mutilation of girls.
And who gives a rats a$$ about cultural "norms". Cultural norms didn't stop everybody from stopping female genital mutilation.
