- The HIV/Aids activist Rubaramira Ruranga is a father of 11
- He regrets having two-year-old child at his age
- Ruranga advised young couples to agree on a number of children they want
HIV/Aids activist and father of 11 Rubaramira Ruranga has opted for vasectomy to stop stressing his 41-year-old wife with family planning.
The 71-year-old whose last born is only two years regretted having a young child at a time he should be sleeping or even sharing a moment with his grandchildren.
Even though he insists the vasectomy was one of the greatest decisions he has ever made, Ruranga advised couples to agree on a number of children they want as reported by Sqoop News.
“I decided to go for vasectomy instead of stressing my wife with family planning. She is 41 and I am 71 years.
I advise you, men and women, to agree on a number of children you want to produce in consideration of your financial abilities. Do not produce and you find yourself looking after babies even when you are aged like me,” he advised.
He was speaking during launch of Men plus a Reach A Hand Uganda and Reproductive Health Uganda initiatives which are aimed at promoting men in family planning.
According to a 2013 UN report, most men who have practised vasectomy come from South Africa and Namibia.
Only 0.1% of Kenyan men have entertained the idea.
