Traditional Leaders Criticise NGOs Over Circumcision

National House of Traditional Leaders vow to continue with the customary circumcision of young Xhosa and Sotho men

The National House of Traditional Leaders has vowed to continue with the customary circumcision of young Xhosa and Sotho men, and has warned "intrusive NGOs" opposed to the practice to stay away.

"The intrusive NGOs and groups are in for a real fight because they do not know anything about the importance of (male) circumcision," says chief Gcinikhaya Gwadiso, head of the house's national campaign for safe initiation schools.

Gwadiso was referring to anti-circumcision groups such as the National Organisation of Circumcision Resource Centres and the National Organisation to Restore Men, which have openly spoken out against circumcision.
