We can’t end FGM, government says

'In an interview with The Citizen this week, Ms Mwalimu said the only weapon at the disposal of the government was public education. She added: “We cannot end this problem only by the force of the law. Our greatest hope is to create awareness. We have been trying to engage traditional leaders who are said to encourage the practice.” The crackdown on female circumcision in Mara region during the season that started on December 15 last year did not materialise despite the public pronouncements and promises of government officials.'
