09 December 2015, 13:10 Geoffrey Kimagut

Narok - A woman was Tuesday arraigned before a Narok Court and charged for allowing her premises to be used to carry out Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) on her two daughters, contrary to the FGM prohibition Act 2011.

Lucy Kiparus was arraigned before Narok Chief Magistrate, Wilbroda Juma and charged with allowing her house to be used in performing FGM on December 1, 2015 at Eor Ewuaso village in Narok South sub-County.

She also faced another charge of failing to report when the illegal exercise was being performed on her two daughters in her house.

The accused denied the charges and was released on a bond of KES 300 000 with one surety of a similar amount. The case will be heard on February 9.

Her two daughters, Naasisho and Nyamalo Kiparus were also arraigned before the same court for allowing female genital mutilation to be performed on them contrary to Anti-FGM Act 2011.

They pleaded guilty to the charges and told the court they agreed to FGM on their own volition, being adults of 18 and 21 years respectively and pleaded with the court to discharge their mother. But the court informed them that their mother's charges were separate from theirs.

Their case will also be mentioned on December 9 for judgment.

The accused persons were arrested by police officers following a tip-off where they found the girls recuperating in the house after undergoing the FGM.
