No Schoolgirls Screened for Genital Cutting - Kenyan Authorities

The Kenyan Anti-Female Genital Mutilation Board says no schoolgirls have been screened for evidence of female genital mutilation and paraded despite an order by Narok County Commissioner George Natembeya. Board chairperson Agnes Pareiyo says investigations show that all the girls are in school.

Students from various universities enact a play during the International Day of Zero Tolerance on Female Genital Mutilation, at Kerio Valley Boys Secondary School in Tot, Elgeyo-Marakwet County, on February 6, 2016.
