About a dozen men were ambushed and forced to undergo circumcisions in western Kenya as part of a 'ceremony', according to reports.
The 12 men were subjected to the procedure after their wives revealed they had not had it done previously. One of the wives, Anne Njeri, who witnessed the incident on Friday, told the West fm radio station: 'We are happy with the move to have such men cut because uncircumcised men are dirty and do not perform well in bed and thus we are sure their wives will now enjoy their marriages.'
The men who carried out the procedure have said all the men who have not been circumcised will undergo the procedure in what has been dubbed 'circumcision season', according to the Kenyan Daily Post
The season is said to last for the first three weeks of August, the International Business Times has reported.
About 50 men have now reportedly asked police for help to protect them from the forced procedure.
