ODPP vows to prosecute those practicing FGM

14 November 2014, 14:26 Nechesa Chemoi

Nairobi - The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions has sent a strong warning to communities that are still practicing Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and other related practices that violate the rights of girls and women in Kenya.

In a statement signed by Christine Nanjala, the Head of Anti FGM Prosecution Unit, the ODPP said it had noted with grave concern that such practices mostly happen during school holidays, saying it will take strong action against those who will be found practicing the vice.

“ODPP therefore warns parents, teachers, guardians, medical practitioners, the Public Administrators, and the general public against the said practices,” Nanjala said in the statement.

She said they are keenly monitoring areas that have a high prevalence of the vice, and they will not hesitate to take legal action against anybody who will be involved in the practices.

“The ODPP takes this opportunity to remind members of the public that FGM and its related practices are criminal offenses and anyone who will be found to have committed any such offense will be prosecuted,” 

The ODPP further asked anyone who will witness such practices to report through the hotline number 0770 610505, or through email antifgmunit@gmail.com, or report to the nearest police station.
