Female Genital Mutilation, FGM
FGM is an old practice that was done by most of the African communities long time ago before the arrival of the White Men and their Western civilization to the then “Dark” African continent .However, some communities have never ceased from this practice since they still hold their ancestral beliefs that a girl is immature until she undergoes FGM.
To these communities, FGM is the final stage that marks the end of childhood and a transition point to adulthood. It’s after this traditional cultural ceremonial practice that a girl is allowed to get married.These communities still are attached to the ancestral roots and have fully rejected the Westernization.
Mutooni urged all the residents of Kitui to team up together and campaign against Witchcraft and FGM. He said together these social vices can be done away with within a period of at least 6 months if all the people get determined to phase out the vice from their region.
