Parents In Botched FGM To Be Charged With Murder

The Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Keriako Tobiko has directed that murder charges be preferred against the parents and the person who was carrying out the circumcision of the 13 year old girl who died after a botched FGM operation in Kajiado County.

The father of the deceased girl, his two wives and the the person who was carrying out the circumcision are expected in court today, Tuesday to answer to the murder charges a week after the death of the girl.

The 13 year old girl lost her life after excessive bleeding.

The parents of the girl then tried to bury her secretly but were stopped by the local chief.

Area assistant Chief Shadrack Mututua also rescued three other girls who had run away to evade the cut during the incident last week.
