Perpetrators of female genital mutilation in Bomet are Chepalungu will soon be arrested.
Ministry of Gender director Duncan Ngeno said they have mapped out areas where the outlawed is still carried out.
He said their research also found out that the practice was being carried out in secret to avoid attracting the hawked eye and long harm of the law.
"It is true the practice is still rooted in parts of Chepalungu but the perpetrators have opted to conduct it in their homes secretly rather than in seclusion like in the past to avert suspicion and possible reprisals for breaking the law," he said.
Ngeno said they will invoke the children's act in the crackdown.
In an interview with the Star in his office at Bomet, Ngeno said they are networking with the members of the provincial administration to also end early marriages.
