Kenyan schools examine girls for FGM

In Kenya, girls returning from their school holidays in Narok are going to be examined to see if they have undergone female genital mutilation (FGM).

The directive, brought in by the county commissioner, is aimed at stopping FGM which is illegal but still continues in this part of Kenya.

Teachers are not convinced that forced inspections are helping.

Charles Ngeno from the Kenyan Union of Post Primary Education Teachers told BBC Focus on Africa radio that by the time the tests are done the “damage has already been done”.

He also expressed concern that the test could have the unintended consequence of stigmatising girls who have undergone FGM and cause further trauma.
