Kenyan County to Force School Girls to Take Pregnancy Tests

Narok County Commissioner George Natembeya has said it will also be established whether the girls underwent female genital mutilation during the December holidays. Those found to have undergone the cut will be forced to record statements with police as FGM is illegal in the country, those who get pregnant will be forced to reveal the identities of the men responsible.
