Report reveals doctors' involvement in FGM

16 January 2016, 19:32

Nairobi - Health PS, Nicholas Muraguli has put doctors on notice after reports emerged that they have been engaging in unethical behavior. 

According to the newly released Kenya Demographic and Health Survey 2014 (KDHS), medics are among people who have been performing the outlawed Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) on women.

The survey found that one in every five FGM operations have been performed by a medic, with Muraguli has threatened to revoke licenses of those involved.

Somali, Samburu, Kisii and Maasai women are the most affected by the outlawed rite, Standard reports.
