'Our kids will never be the same' - parents on circumcision fiasco

29 December, 08:57 AM

Johannesburg - Nearly a year after the horror circumcisions at the Noordgesig Primary School in Soweto, parents say their children will never be the same again. 

“There are a couple of differences in my son, but the main concern is, he is not open anymore. When you shout at him, he starts crying or he isolates himself,” Vernon Brink said. Brink said his son, in Grade 7, was one of the 40 boys taken to the Fleurhof clinic, to be circumcised, in October last year.

Only three boys were circumcised. Brink’s son fled and avoided being circumcised.
