by Kiplang'at Kirui
A chief in Narok South subcounty has been interdicted for allegedly allowing his two daughters and two neighbours to undergo the female genital mutilation.

Deputy county commissioner Stephen Nyakundi said chief Lekishon Moriaso of Maji Moto location was arrested on Monday and will appear in court.

The chief was arrested at his home when Nyakundi led the AP officers and county children officer Julius Ngoko and stormed the celebrations after the cut.

This comes a day after a 13-year-old girl was reported to have bled to death in Kajiado county after she was circumcised.

The girls aged between 14 and 16 were taken to Narok County Referral Hospital for treatment.
