Arua Hill SC Chairman Embraces Vasectomy
It is not common for a man in Uganda to come out publicly about his sexual life, especially so, if it involves a procedure many men still fear to talk about or even undergo. But a section of men in Uganda are defying this norm and are openly talking about what made them undergo a vasectomy.
Arua Hilll SC Chairman Aita Joel has ‘decided to end the journey and concentrate on giving his children quality life.’
The belligerent businessman took to twitter to share the news.
“After birth of kid 5, I decided to end the journey and concentrate on giving them quality life.
“At times the man has to take responsibility of the birth control and besides a good quality life for the children can only be given to a number you can manage.
“It’s simple If you want real good education for your children, you have to pay a very good school. Definitely when a primary school charges you over 20m per term per kid. Then you need to have a number you can manage. In my case I can manage 5. Someone else can manage ten. Another less.”
What is Vasectomy?
Vasectomy is a permanent family planning method for men that stops sperms from being injected into semen. During the procedure, male vessels that carry sperms from the testicles are cut and tied so as to prevent sperm from entering into the urethra. This prevents the fertilization of a female through sexual intercourse.
According to the Ministry of Health, there is an increase in the number of men who carry out vasectomy, mostly in central and western Uganda. In the 2017/2018 financial year, a total of 1,235 vasectomies were carried out nationally compared to 1,313 men in 2018/2019.
