I am very pleased and proud to join you for this important milestone event, which tells yet another Namibian success story. 150,000!  This is the magic number we are celebrating today.  We are celebrating 150,000 smart male Namibians who have volunteered to get the “smart cut.” Under the leadership and guidance of the Ministry of Health and Social Services, these boys and men received a safe Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision (VMMC).  Their action significantly contributed to the country’s fight against HIV.  And yes, these smart boys and men deserve a round of applause.
