MP slams Kenyatta’s move to form anti FGM Authority

07 January 2014, 14:00 Oduor Omondi

Migori - Rarieda legislator, Nicholas Gumbo, has slammed President Uhuru Kenyatta’s move to form a Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) Authority, saying FGM is a cultural practice which does not require a national authority to be combated.

Gumbo said FGM is illegally practiced as a rite of passage by few communities in the country and a cultural approach should be employed in addressing the issue.

The MP also asked the Jubilee government to immediately establish a fish board that will regulate the fish industry which has the potential to transform the country’s economy.

Eng. Gumbo argued that fish is a key resource that supports the livelihood of close to 50 percent of Kenyans and that improving the management of fish industry will have direct social economic impact on the population.

He however regretted that communities that depend on fish for a living have remained poor because the industry has historically been ignored by the previous regimes in what he termed as economic discrimination.

Eng. Gumbo therefore asked the current government to revamp the industry to enable it realize its potential by creating more wealth and employment not only for socio-economic empowerment but as a fulfillment of promises they made during campaign period.
