Two Kenyan women aged 26 and 22 arrested after being circumcised to please husbands

Published

Administration Police officers in Elburgon have arrested two women for undergoing circumcision.

The two aged 22 and 26 years were arrested at Ndoswa in Mariashoni after secretly undergoing the cut in Kiptunga Forest two weeks ago.

Leading the team, Elburgon Assistant County Commissioner Naftaly Kipkorir said the arrest came after a tip off from residents.

“We did not arrest those who conducted the cut as they disappeared after the [performing] cut,” said Mr Korir, adding that they have launched investigations into the matter.

One of the woman said they opted for the cut following pressure from their husbands.

“[Our] husbands are not accorded the respect they [deserve] as they are [deemed to be] of low dignity [in] the community (for marrying uncircumcised women),” one of the women said.

In one of the homesteads, several marks were visible to symbolise that the ‘cut’ had taken place.

The two women were treated at Elburgon Sub-County Hospital before being taken to Elburgon Police Station.

Female circumcision has been going on in Njoro and Molo sub-counties.

Recently, three women were arrested in Njoro for practicing the illegal act.

VIDEO: Bodyguard embarrasses president Kenyatta with awkward door opening

Published

on

A security officer assigned to President Uhuru Kenyatta accidentally released the car door at the wrong time while his boss was trying to get out. The incident occurred on Thursday in South Africa where Mr Kenyatta is on a three-day official visit.

The Head of State brushed off the incident and carried on as if nothing has happened although a section of social media users questioned the professionalism of the guards.

 

Kenyatta held bilateral talks with his host President Jacob Zuma and addressing the press after the talks, the two leaders expressed their desire to strengthen relations between the two countries for the benefit of their nations and peoples.

They both confirmed they discussed trade and connectivity and how the two would boost industrialisation and create jobs for millions of young people.

“Industrialisation is key to creating job opportunities for the youth and wealth for our nations and peoples,” stated Kenyatta.

Apart from the issues of trade and infrastructure, they also deliberated on regional peace and security, especially the South Sudan conflict and the “new slave trade in Libya”.

“We will then conclude key issues when President Kenyatta is back later this year,” revealed Zuma.

On the agreed visit, Kenyatta added: “We have laid the groundwork for my State visit sometime in the first quarter of this year.

“We look forward to concluding and signing various agreements.”
