The actor is encouraging men to book a medical circumcision by sending a ‘please call me’ to 082 808 6152 to secure a slot at #ZwakalaSkeem (come with me brother) day at one of 150 clinics in Gauteng, KZN, Mpumalanga and the North West.
“I would like South African men to join me in a celebration of masculinity, brotherhood and good health. I’m calling on men to be circumcised with me on Saturday, 11 March 2017,” Kagiso was quoted in a press release.
“I was motivated to have this done when I read how it can protect my wife from getting human papillomavirus (HPV) which causes cervical cancer. But I’ve learnt that in a recent survey of 100 000 men, 47% do it for hygiene reasons and 38% for HIV prevention. Circumcision reduces the risk of contracting HIV by 60% as well as other sexually transmitted infections. Some men do it because it keeps the penis clean, and others because their partners prefer it, but whatever the reason, it’s the right thing to do,” the star added.
Kagiso will undergo the procedure at the Katlehong North Clinic. He has invited the Mini car club, a local DJ and the Ridge Riders Motorcycle Club to be there to celebrate the men who make the choice to circumcise. His wife, Liza Modupe will also take part in the celebrations.
