A 17-year-old boy is nursing injuries in hospital after he was circumcised for the second time at Mikumbune, South Imenti in Meru County.
The boy was allegedly circumcised for the second after reports emerged that his father took him for circumcision at the hospital instead of taking him to traditional circumcisors.
Hassan Omar a Medical Officer at Kanyakine Sub County Hospital says the boy sustained extensive damage to his reproductive organ and had been referred to the Meru Level 5 Hospital for advanced care.
According to Omar, the rogue youths insisted that the boy has to be circumcised again, saying he must face the knife the traditional way.
South Imenti Sub County Deputy Commissioner Gichiri Mugo said they were hunting for the culprits.
