Women leaders and activists in Garissa county yesterday discussed strategies to fight FGM. Ninety-eight per cent of women in Garissa undergo the illegal mutilation, despite the ban Chief officer for Culture and Gender Nimo Mohamed said the county will spend more on the department of women and youth to fight FGM and gender inequality. She said it will support women groups and institutions fighting FGM. The meeting on FGM strategy was held at the Agricultural Training Centre in Garissa town

 

Speaking at the same function, Sisters Maternity Home health and development manager Zahara Hussein said they will focus on traditional birth attendants who mutilate women when aiding in childbirth.

"We will ensure the law takes its course,” Hussein said.

She advised women performing FGM to come forward so they can be assisted in finding other livelihoods.

"We will ask chiefs to work with us closely in ending FGM. The law is clear on FGM and chiefs have no excuse for not implementing it," she said.
