FGM on the rise in Nakuru

23 November 2012, 12:22 Steve Wambugu

The Director of Gap Link in Nakuru town Tom Mboya has said that Nakuru is among the major towns that are practicing Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) in the country.

Speaking in Nakuru town on Friday morning during a press briefing, Mboya said that FGM had shifted from rural areas to urban areas ever since the government became tough on the communities which were still performing the act in the countryside.

With reference to a recent research by the Gap Link, Mboya pointed that women visit their grand daughters who are living in major towns during the holiday season so as to perform FGM on the children without the government realizing.

"FGM is on the rise in Nakuru town and that's why many grandmothers have adopted the new techniques of instead of the grand daughters visiting them in the rural areas to perform the FGM," Mboya noted.

The Director of Gap Link called out on the government and women rights bodies to be extra vigilant during this holiday season.

"During this holiday season and festive season the government and the women rights bodies need to be extra vigilant on the ground because this acts of FGM could be going on unnoticed by the systems," said Mboya.
