Trans Mara Police Arrest an FGM Practitioner

Police in Trans Mara on Wednesday morning arrested a woman who is said to engage in Female Genital Mutilation.

Confirming the incident the Trans Mara West OCPD Alfred Muthua told Journalists that his officers raided Judith Chepkemoi’s home at Poroko area at around 5 AM and managed to arrest the 36 years old woman and her 15 years old sister who had undergone FGM.

Muthua said that the police also raided two neighbouring homes where they found 15 years old and a 14 years old girl who had been circumcised by the woman who comes from Sotik and has been operating a small shop in the area to hide her real trade.

“The police also arrested both parents of the two girls besides the circumciser who is new in the area and whom we suspect has been operating a shop as a cover for her activities,” said Muthua.

The police boss said that the circumciser would be taken to court where she will face charges for engaging in FGM while the parents of the two girls will also face charges of aiding and abetting FGM.
