Bill ready in Uganda

Let's hope the bill will pass.

"A Bill outlawing female genital mutilation is ready to be presented to the House for the second reading and be passed into law, MPs have been told. She urged people in communities where the practice is still rampant to report perpetrators and parents who subject their girl-children to genital mutilation. Upon conviction for indulging in the practice, one faces a maximum jail term of 10 years."
