Police In Samburu Investigating An Incident Where A Minor Was Forced To Undergo FGM By Her Parent

Police in Samburu County are investigating an incident in which a 14 year old girl was reportedly forced to under Female Genital Mutilation by her parent at Nga’ri village in Samburu central sub county.

The victim who had sat for her Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) this year told journalists that her mother forced her to undergo the painful cultural practice.

“My mum had told me about it, they woke me up at 3 am and forced me through the painful act, i am in lots of pain now,” said the shaken minor at Maralal police station.

Samburu county police Commander Alfred Agengo confirmed the incident saying that police have already launched the investigations into the incident with an aim of apprehending suspects.

He urged communities that are still practicing FGM in the region to abandon as the harmful cultural practice has been outlawed.

“This tradition has been passed by events, it is unlawful. It is a social and a health problem because it affects a child emotionally and this might interfere with her education,” said Agengo.

Agengo said that the girl will be taken to a rescue centre away from any suspects so that she can help the police with investigations

Paskalina Naibash, a staff at Samburu Girls Foundation said incidences of FGM have greatly increased in the county especially during this December holiday.

She warned parents that whoever that will be found forcing FGM on their children will not escape legal punishment as per the law.

Naivasha Man Cuts 2-year-old Son’s Genitals For Urinating While He Was Bathing Him

There was drama in a Naivasha estate after a middle aged man cut his two year old son’s genitals as punishment for urinating while he was being bathed.

Residents of Gatamaiyu village in the lake side town were left in anger following the incident as police moved in to arrest the suspect.

Trouble started after the man who had been married for two months was told to bathe his step son as the mother prepared lunch.

According to an elder Patrick Njoroge, the suspect warned his son not to relieve himself in the basin and when the minor repeatedly did the same he took up a knife and cut part of his genitals.

Njoroge said that as punishment the suspect bit several parts of the minor’s body before he was rescued by the mother who alerted neighbors.

“This is the most inhuman act we have seen in this village in years and the residents wanted to lynch the suspect but police arrived in time and took him to the station,” he said.

He termed the suspect as that of sound mind adding that he had never had any confrontations with the villagers.

A child rights activist Esther Njeri condemned the act terming it as inhuman and called for stiffer penalties for the suspect.

Njeri who is a former nominated MCA said the minor was taken to the Naivasha sub-county hospital where he is responding well to treatment.

“Stern action must be taken against the suspect and we will follow the matter to its logical conclusion so that the innocent minor can get justice,” she said.

Njeri who has for years been on the fore front in advocating for children rights at the same time said cases of child abuse in the area were on the decline with few being reported.

She said concerted efforts by all stakeholders including police had helped in reducing the numbers especially in villages where the vice was common.

“We have conducted public awareness and advocacy, passed several laws in the previous assembly where I served and the results are positive in all the villages where such incidences were common,” she said.

Murang’a Governor Threatens To Sack Medics Over Lack Of Drugs In Hospitals

Murang’a governor Mwangi wa Iria has threatened to sack medical superintendents of local hospitals over lack of drugs and laboratory services.

The governor who conducted an impromptu tour of Murang’a general hospital which is the county referral hospital was shocked to find hundreds of patients who had been referred to private labs and pharmacies.

Patients complained that the hospital lacked basic drugs like de-wormers and that they are referred to specific pharmacies and labs for tests and medication.

“They have told me that they do not have re-agents to conduct tests on my stool and referred me to a certain lab in Murang’a town,” one patient said.

The hospital’s management was at pains to explain why the hospital did not have drugs only saying that a supplier had delayed delivery.

After interrogation, medics also revealed that some of the drugs patients had been told to buy in private pharmacies had alternatives that were available in the hospital.

“I do not understand why patients are being sent outside for basic lab tests and medications. I have seen a case where a patient was charged Sh. 10,000 for a test in a local lab. This is unacceptable,” Wa Iria said.

The governor noted that the county government has set aside Sh. 700 million for drugs and that there is no excuse for health facilities not to be properly stocked.

He threatened to sack medical superintendents of health facilities that will be found without sufficient medications saying they are punishing patients.

Wa Iria accused medics of colluding with private labs and pharmacies to get a cut for every patient they refer to them.

He said as a result, medics delay procurement of drugs and send patients to the private facilities to make extra money.

Wa Iria sacked officers in charge of the pharmacy but rehired them after patients pleaded with him to forgive them.

“This is corruption of the highest order and will not be tolerated. The next time I get complaints of lack of drugs, they will go home,” the governor said.
