Alangizi told to end genital modification 

By Moombe Hamoobola

Livingstone University Teaching Hospital Gender Based Violence-GBV One Stop Centre Coordinator DERRICK SIALONDWE has urged traditional counsellors commonly known as ‘Alangizi’ to stop encouraging the girl child to do genital modification.

Commenting on International Day of Zero Tolerance for Female Genital Mutilation, Mr. SIALONDWE said genital modification is not common in Zambia but that labia elongation is common.

He said the Alangizi must change their syllabus because some things that they encourage such as labia elongation  amounts to GBV.
