MADRID — Two Kenyan boys whose penises were cut off to be sold for making anti-AIDS potions have had them reconstructed in Spain, the doctor treating them said.
The adolescent boys, from a remote region near the border with Uganda, were mutilated after being given drugged food or drink by strangers.
“They had attacked them to cut off their penises to sell . . . for making a type of potion which according to a local belief cures AIDS,” Doctor Pedro Cavadas, from the Levante Rehabilitation Center told radio station Cadena Ser.
