It is so serious that even politicians hardly shy away from taking to the podium to scandalise each other over it. Our politicians always resort to this topic and other trivial cultural aspects when they run out serious ideas on how to spin rhetoric.
A while back we woke up to shocking front page news on the same in one of the local dailies. The politics of the foreskin is not anything new in Kenya.
The sultan of slurs from Gatundu thrives on it. According to his gospel, foreskins mislead the mind, and he never hesitates to quote Bible verses that refer to the cultural practice of circumcision. This has gotten him on the wrong side of the law several times.
Not long ago, unapologetic former Kiambu Governor, William Kabogo was questioned by the Criminal Investigation Department for allegedly insinuating that communities that do not cut the foreskin should not produce national leaders.
Meanwhile, we are yet to hear the last of why the doyen of Kenyan politics should not be president for allegedly being uncut.
