Police in Narok, Kenya has rescued a 35-year-old man identified only as Brown, who was about to be circumcised by force.
It was gathered that, Brown is a taxi driver and his colleague laid an ambush for him after they got a tip-off from his girlfriend that he was still uncircumcised.
This development led to a pandemonium in Narok town on Monday as taxi operators frog-matched and stripped Brown the taxi driver in a forced circumcision attempt.
Eyewitnesses alleged that Brown was said to have been exhibiting ‘childish’ behaviors, eliciting suspicion among his colleagues.
“We recently got a tip off from his close friends that he was not circumcised. Ironically he has been insulting people by referring them as ‘kihii’ (uncircumcised).We laid an ambush and when we stripped him, we confirmed that he was indeed uncircumcised,” said a boda boda operator.
Colleagues of the 35-year-old man, reportedly raised Sh7,000 to cater for the forced circumcision before frog marching him to Enkare-Narok river, where they cleaned him ahead of the cut that he was supposed to have had when he turned 18, as a traditional rite of passage to manhood.
However, the mobs were stopped from performing the ritual when the police arrived the scene shooting live bullets in the air. But the crowed vowed not to allow him back into the community until he is circumcised.
