Queenmother calls for reintroduction of puberty rites

Nana Badu I, Queenmother of Enyan-Abowinum in the Central Region, on Monday called on traditional rulers and other opinion leaders in the country to reintroduce puberty rites and other customary practices that supported child upbringing.

She said this would help curb teenage pregnancy, prostitution, the spread of HIV/AIDS and enhance the development of children, particularly, the girl-child.

Nana Badu, who made the call at a seminar, organized by Hope For Future Generations (HFFG), a non-governmental organisation (NGO), for opinion leaders in the Enyan-Abowinum area, at Ajumako, said customary practices in the past prevented sexual promiscuity and pre-marital sex among children.

The seminar was to solicit views of participants on how to curb teenage pregnancy and the spread of HIV/AIDS among the youth in the area.

Nana Badu expressed worry that some parents encouraged their daughters, some who were school children to engage in prostitution or sexual promiscuity by taking money from them.

Nana Amankwa XI, chief of Ajumako-Essaman, said the high incidence of teenage pregnancy in the area was partly due to poverty and urged government to assist the people to acquire loans to undertake economic activities.

The Director of the NGO, Mrs Adriane de-Haille appealed to the people to support government developmental agenda to improve their wellbeing.

about covering up, this is a one day thing compared to what is happening everyday now with the way people dress now.

you are right about should be a two way just like in East Africa, but unfortunately it isn't.

Any man will tell you that there is a difference between ritualized females and non-ritualized females. Unless you have experienced a ritualized female, you have no idea what you are missing on this earth.

Some of the training, in preparing a woman for wifery duties, is to put broken bottles on a bed to make sure the woman suspends her bottom in the air for the husband to be. This may not be Ghanaian but definately African. Now translate that to bedmatics and you know what I mean. This is besides the other womanly duties taught by the learned elderly ladies.

As to the men taking part in this activity, I beg to differ. Women have received worldwide attention and condemnation against female genital mutilation. So they deserve to go through the ritual.

Men are still suffering from male genital mutilation in silence. Yes I am refering to circumcision or the "Unkindest Cut." According to the Assocation for keeping the male genital intact (yes there is such an association), circumcision can be defined as a cruel, traumatic and unnecessary surgery that causes enduring sexual and psychological injury to a helpless infant who cannot give his consent.

When men win this fight, then it is time to fight for ritualization.
