PRESIDENT Yoweri Museveni has cautioned Ugandans not to consider male circumcision as the remedy and automatic control of HIV/AIDS infection. He said messages promoting the practice were misguiding and may put the lives of many people in danger since it had not been proven to be scientifically true. The President made the remarks during a thanksgiving service organised by the First Lady and Ruhaama MP, Janet Museveni, to thank the Lord for her landslide victory in the February polls. The function was held at Ruhaama sub-county headquarters in Ruhaama county, Ntungamo district on Saturday. He said if male circumcision was the answer to HIV prevention, then Ugandans who conduct circumcision as a traditional belief or a religious practice would not contract the disease. He, however, said there is proof that these people had contracted HIV and the disease prevails in their communities. The President emphasised abstinence from premarital sex and faithfulness in marriage as the guarantee to a life free from HIV.
