Thousands queue for snip job


More than 3 000 men were circumcised under the National Male Circumcision Programme, a number that went way above the targeted figure.

Speaking at a National Partnership Forum organised by the National Aids Council (NAC), Sinokuthemba Xaba from the Ministry of Health revealed that the programme was oversubscribed as they received more men than they expected.

“Since May 2009 we have circumcised 3304 men, a number that we were not expecting. We had targeted 2000 but that is what we had.

“We were operating from five sites all across Zimbabwe as this was a learning phase, but we were happy about it and we want it to go on so that we reach the target of 1,2 million by 2012,” said Xaba.
