      [The Jews have been carrying out routine circumcisions for thousands of
      years - without giving it a second thought. Here we see these idiotic
      "Traditional Healers" causing damage and even deaths. Jan]

      The number of fatalities during this year's winter circumcision season in
      the Eastern Cape has risen to nine after the death of a youth at Libode
      in the Transkei, the Eastern Cape health department said on Monday.

      "Doctors have also partially amputated the penises of two boys at the
      Nelson Mandela general hospital in Mthatha, while the future of three
      boys were still unsure.

      "If they do not respond to gangrene treatment soon, they would also get
      surgery," said provincial health spokesperson Sizwe Kupelo.

      Kupelo said health authorities on Monday closed three more illegal
      circumcision schools in the Zandukwala area near Libode after the closure
      of two schools over the weekend.

      "A helicopter was used over the weekend to find illegal schools and
      rescue initiates," he said.

      Fourteen youths were admitted to the Lessie Night Hospital at Qumbu while
      14 more were admitted to the St Barnabas Hospital in Libode over the
      weekend.

      The health department has closed 31 illegal schools so far this season.

      According to the department a traditional surgeon linked to botched
      circumcisions would also appear in court on Tuesday facing a charge of
      murder and running an unlawful circumcision school.

      Kupelo said the same doctor was arrested last year for botched
      circumcisions and received a three year suspended sentence. He is one of
      fifteen traditional surgeons arrested this season for botched
      circumcisions in the Eastern Cape.

      One of them allegedly circumcised 28 boys with one unsterilised knife. -
