AFRICA: Kenya anti-FGM board: 'no girl has been paraded for FGM screening'

Kenyan schoolgirls are not forced to undergo female genital mutilation (FGM) inspections, Kenyan authorities said, according to news agency Reuters. The commissioner for Narok county proposed compulsory tests and sparked an outrage. George Natembeya said girls returning to school after break were being screened for FGM in order to prosecute their parents and cutters, according to Reuters. Kenya's Anti-FGM Board said they had conducted an investigation in Narok after Mr Natembeya's statement and found no evidence of girls being tested. An estimated 200 million girls and women worldwide have undergone FGM, which usually involves the partial or total removal of the external genitalia, according to the UN.
