Put an End FGM
Written by Moses Omollo on December 15, 2021
Migori County residents have been urged to be in the front row in fighting Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). This is by arresting and handing the perpetrators to the police as one of the ways of fighting gender based violence.
Speaking at Kehancha in a function to sensitize citizens against gender based violence, Kuria West Deputy County Commissioner Andrew Mwiti said that the locals have the right to arrest and present to the police anyone found mistreating mothers and ladies. He also urged the residents more so from Kuria to abort any plans to conduct FGM before they are caught up by the law.
Advocate Esther Ang’awa urged the citizens not to fear reporting any cases of gender based violence since the government has an urgency to protect witnesses, that is Witness Protection Agency.
