SCHOOL CUTBACKS: MALE STUDENTS SENT HOME

Twenty schoolboys enrolled for only three days at Kiriani Boys high school in eastern Kenya were told to leave until they get circumcized. A letter to parents said, “Please do the needful within two weeks and let your son report back to school immediately he is well.” Circumcision is not compulsory at the school, but the principal believed the boys would make their circumcised fellows uncomfortable “in the condition they’re in.”
