CHARLES Tabu, the 16-year-old who was born with two sexual organs, has been operated upon and turned into a boy.

Medics at the Comprehensive Rehabilitation Services in Uganda (CoRSU) hospital in Kawuku on Entebbe Road removed Tabu’s breast, uterus and the female organ.

CoRSU administration director Matthias Widmaier-Maicher said last week’s operation was the first of the three that Tabu is to undergo to be fully turned into a male.

“He will undergo the second operation after six weeks and the date when the third operation would take place will be determined then,” he stated.

The hospital carries out plastic surgery on persons with disability.
Widmaier-Maicher said they would compute the cost later “but right now we are giving him treatment without any payment.” He said the boy was traumatised by his condition and needed counseling.

Tabu’s condition was highlighted in Bukedde a couple of months ago. Sources said it was less complicated to turn him into a male than into a female.
