Alarm over rampant cases of FGM in Elgeyo Marakwet County

Former Elgeyo Marakwet women representative Dr. Susan Chebet has expressed fears that girls in the county may not resume learning after schools reopen after most of them underwent FGM during the COVID-19 period.

She called on the government to step up measures to protect young girls from the outdated process which has been passed by time.

Dr. Chebet further asked security personnel to ensure those found carrying out the practice face the full force of the law.
