Speaking to the media this past Friday, former Generations actor, Melusi Yeni urged men who have yet to get circumcized to consider getting the procedure done.
This is part of a USAID Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision Project in which Yeni was reportedly the millionth man to get medically circumcised as part of the program.
The aim of the drive is to promote the practice for its various health benefits. Chief among which are reducing the spread of HIV and AIDS.

Yeni has also been keeping fans updated on his journey and progress via social media.
This is an on-going drive, urging men across the nation to do the same if they have not yet.
