Even as the political crisis in Kenya continues, many are unaware of the activities of the Mungiki terror gang in places like Naivasha. Even as Mwai Kibaki tells the world that the violence is under control and that “there is no problem in Kenya.”.
Apart from forcing all women to wear skirts, the Mungiki terror gangs are also insisting that all women intending to live in Naivasha should be circumcised. Many communities in Kenya, including the Kikuyu have circumcised their women for years. It is still unclear how the Mungiki aim to enforce this.
This barbaric and savage practice has numerous disadvantages some of which you may not have known about.
To start with, later in life women who have been circumcised have little control of urine, meaning that many times they will end up passing urine on themselves long before they can reach a place where they are able to relive themselves. In some cases this may cause a woman to constantly smell of urine. You can imagine what that can do to a marriage.
The whole idea of circumcision in many communities was to considerably dull and possibly destroy sexual pleasure so that chances of a wife straying are drastically reduced. What this does is to make certain sexual positions impossible with a woman who has been “cut.” Many times those positions will cause pain. This has nudged some “cut” women into drugs in a desperate bid to experience their God-given right.
Then there are some serious problems that could occur during child-birth for circumcised women.
Even more interesting is what spiritual experts have to say about the effects of circumcising women on a marriage. Some of them have assured Kumekucha that the practice makes women overly aggressive and determined to dominate their men. Many divorces have been linked to the circumcision of women by these spiritual experts.
