He said it was also</p><p>extremely important for parents to be in-</p><p>volved throughout the initiation process.</p><p>Parents must take the time to check out</p><p>the place where their children would be cir-</p><p>cumcised. They should never just givemoney</p><p>to a surgeon and then take a back seat, he</p><p>said.</p><p>A number of illegal initiation schools had</p><p>been closed down, while a number of illegal</p><p>traditional surgeons had been arrested in the</p><p>Pondoland region.</p><p>Siyongwana, who had 37 initiates this year,</p><p>said there should be open communication be-</p><p>tween the surgeon and his traditional nurses</p><p>(amakhankatha). According to him, stran-</p><p>gers should not be allowed to visit the initi-</p><p>ates. The only people who should be allowed</p><p>to visit, are relatives who need not spend a</p><p>long time at ebhomeni (initiation school).</p><p>Proper behaviour at initiation schools was</p><p>also highlighted by Siyongwana. There</p><p>should be no smoking or drinking of alcohol.</p><p>The traditional surgeons must closely ob-</p><p>serve their boys and create a platform where</p><p>initiates are able to express themselves, so</p><p>that it would be easy to sense if there was a</p><p>problem which affected any of the initiates.</p><p>He said there should always be an open com-</p><p>munication channel between surgeonand ini-</p><p>tiates and that surgeons had to teach initiates</p><p>about the passage to manhood.</p><p>He stressed that surgeons should have a</p><p>passion to perform the custom and not do it</p><p>for the money. According to him, traditional</p><p>leaders should allow legal surgeons to open</p><p>initiation schools in their areas.</p><p>During the provincial initiation launch in</p><p>Mthatha Nkosi Ngangomhlaba Matanzima</p><p>stressed his discontent over the traditional</p><p>surgeonswho conducted circumcisionswhile</p><p>drunk. Spokesperson for the Department of</p><p>Traditional Affairs, Mamkeli Ngam, said res-</p><p>cue centres played a cardinal role in the re-</p><p>duction of a number of deaths.</p><p>He said a summit on circumcision in the</p><p>Eastern Cape would be held in September,</p><p>with the aim of reducing the high death rate.</p><p>. Siyongwana entered ubungcibi after two</p><p>boys on his rugby team at Excesior Senior</p><p>Secondary School died during circumcision.</p><p>He then decided to intervene, following in the</p><p>footsteps of his grandfather, Duma Sandav-</p><p>eyisi Oliver Makhalima.</p><p>Initiatedeaths completelyunnecessary</p><p>Qaqambile Siyongwana with initiates in his initiation school in Mthatha.
