Kajeemah, Female Circumcision, My True Story
by Elizabeth Yaba
It took me about 30 years to feel comfortable to release this book. I was 15 years old when I was circumcised in my village, Sukudu, Sierra Leone. It is a secret society and it is forbidden to discuss it outside the circle of members. Their reason for female circumcision was that the woman became clean, sexually tamed, and ready for marriage. I am thankful for America’s First Amendment that finally gave me some strength to move forward and complete this book. Here are my findings that included psychological effects: takes sensitivity out of sex, promotes polygamy, promotes male domineering, disconnect human connection as nature would have it, minus legitimacy pregnancy, lastly, stunts the woman’s reproductive abilities. This is the 21st Century and up till this day that practice is still carried out in some villages, although they claim to have stopped this terrible gruesome and unbearable severely painful act which have caused many young teenagers to die from that practice, it still continues today. “Yaba TV” has been around for 25 years. It is time to unfold my legacy as host of “Yaba TV” to be of mutual merit to the younger generation. With your support and purchase of “Kajeemah Book,” you are helping to change lives. There are many circumcised women from Africa that live in the U.S and other parts of the world that live with the pain, shame, and blameless guilt, who are seeking for coping mechanism. This Book includes all of the above. The end result of “Kajeemah Book” is to have “Yaba TV” produce shows on the topic (female circumcision) and send to Africa beginning with my country, Sierra Leone, to educate the communities. Dr. Cheyenne Bryant, President of NAACP for San Pedro and Wilmington, California, who wrote the Foreword for “Kajeemah Book,” her group is supporting the effort of change by “Yaba TV,” and we welcome organizations to voice their opinions as well as support. Lastly, if you are one of the victims, we would like to hear from you. Please share your experience with us, and together we can bring that change and save lives of innocent teenagers across the globe.
