The City of Cape Town’s Health Directorate is on hand to help ensure a safe initiation season for both traditional initiation schools and the young men performing their cultural rite of passage this summer.

The initiation season officially two weeks ago.

We don’t want to meddle tradition but the vested interest insuring that the initiation process is done in a manner that promotes the health and wellbeing of the initiates”, said Mayoral Committee Member for Health Councillor Siyabulela Mamkeli

He also added, “There are far too many young men whose journey ends in deaths in part of the country. Deaths which ultimately should and could be avoided”.


“We also started increasing awareness and promotion of medical men circumcision, but we are sensitive to the fact that this is viewed differently from initiation, which is a right passage”, said Siyabulela Mamkeli.
