HOW I REMEMBER MAMA LUCY KIBAKI, SHE OPENED MY EYES IN 2003 SIMPLY INSPIRING! I wrote a speech for her at the 13th ICASA International Conference on HIV/AIDS and Sexually Transmitted Infections in Africa,I was among thousands of youths that volunteered in various dockets , I was the head volunteer in community desk international relations and PR, Then a week close to the conference we received a message from the state house that our desk was entirely responsible with speech writing for the First Lady Mama Lucy and minister of health hon Charity Ngilu , We were all in panic because it was hard to please First Lady at least hon Ngilu was the cool .com, Well I stepped in and appointed several others to do it so we all began writing and by the end of the day I found out they had all wrote for the minister of health not the First Lady ,I remember staying up late to 4 in the morning in our office at KICC and I wrote the speech saved it in floppy disk and the desk top and emailed it to our supervisor Mrs Mary Kairo .The next day I came in at 9am a bit late and when I got inside the office everyone was cheering and clapping "Maasai you did it,Maasai you did it" and I was like "Yes we did it all of us did it" well the speech was delivered to the state house later that afternoon, I went through hon Ngilu's speech just added a little bit of my charm and it was delivered as well, The day before the conference the over 8000 international delegates started arriving they were jet lagged but they had to come in and get their registration packages that volunteers had put together, It was hectic they were tired and guess what I went to the intercom and started singing songs to cheer them up and volunteers down stairs would sing along,Everyone including delegates would clap and dance around, Come the day of the conference and it was time for First Lady Mama Lucy to address the attendees, (I was like she won't read the speech you wrote for her lol Seme stay in your lane) . Then she began reading the speech word by word I had memorized it and I was mouthing everything,I almost passed out I couldn't believe it. Then came Hon Ngilu's turn she read the speech my colleagues and I wrote word by word and I was so happy for my team. After the address First Lady was about to leave and then someone came looking for me and I was like 'Am I in trouble?' They said no First Lady want to talk to you , I said if it's about the speech I totally take full responsibility for letting my country down, lol before I knew it First Lady who hated waiting on anyone was coming my way and she was smiling phew! She said for a volunteer to write such a passionate speech about HIV&AIDS that was great, I said First Lady it was all team work we did it all together and some of the volunteers were living with HIV so they inspired the speech a lot because it was their reality they live it and am just positive at heart. And they wrote for the minister of health speech as well. First Lady told me that she sees the fire in me and she knows am not an embarrassment to the name LUCY she said this while reading my badge and she was like one day you will save your nation from any shame and don't let the MEN intimidate you because they are scared of a woman with a brain and you are beautiful they will give you hell! She thanked the team and then she walked away and turned around and said 'Rucy wewe ni ubwa kari 😂😂😂😂' I laughed and then I did something stupid I barked! She laughed like really loud and said Rucy's don't bark they bite !! Yes that's how former First Lady built me up and I saw in me what I knew i was supposed to be. May her soul rest in everlasting peace may her spirit of family values continue to be our moral guide by believing Kenya is a large family house where all Kenyans live in.
Yours truly Umbwa Kali who bites. Lucy.M.S ....✍🏾✍🏾

My speech March 7th 2015 at University of Oxford London.International Women's Day by Amb Lucy Mashua

My speech March 7th 2015 at University of Oxford London. International Women's Day by Amb Lucy Mashua (Speech read by Dr Tobe at Oxford University London UK on behalf of Lucy Mashua Sharp.) International Women's day March 7th 2015 on FGM in Oxford University London. Hello distinguished women and gender sensitive men. I take this honored day to say thank you to my sister and a friend of many years, Dr Tobe Levin for organizing this event, I want to thank Oxford University for opening doors so we can hold church here today LOL, (Event here today). Thank you all the wonderful live givers/ WOMEN who are here today and all the gender sensitive men here today, honoring the WOMEN of the world today, March 7th International Women's day. Please continue to imagine I am here and Dr Tobe is not reading this on my behalf and y'all will be fine. Women, we are the reason of joy, laughter, peace, love, respect, yet we hardly receive this back so we have to fight to receive at least a fraction of it back. Women, we are givers of lives, yet our lives are taken heartlessly away everyday, if not taken for granted. Women, we are compassionate, nurturing and empathetic yet we are treated like second, third class citizens, if not like nothing, or a solid matter. Women, we fight for our families, our clans, our villages, our nations,our races, our men and children yet when it comes to our God given rights we pay with tears and blood. Women, we are born perfectly with great feminine features, yet we are made to feel like it's a crime to be born a woman, there are all kinds of FEMALE GENDER AND SEXUALITY GENOCIDES.
From our genitals mercilessly mutilated hacked and fed to animals and our blood leaked by dogs and other animals. Everyday over 8000 Women and girls are mutilated in Africa alone, over 3 million annually. If we do the math and help WHO update their misleading global statistics from their 140 millions estimation for the last 3 decades, which has remained at 140, Yet everyday thousands are mutilated! I bet it's a man in charge of the statistics at WHO, a Mr Douche Bag III. I am so happy for the center stage and global shine FGM atrocity has been exposed. I salute Europe particularly UK for the excellent work y'all are doing here, in the US they are still lazy and unwilling, so please say a prayer for us before I burn the house down. UK you have led in the example of working with survivors and letting their voices lead the way, however there is a universal discrimination when it comes to fundings. It's the same everywhere, but I think in the US it's worse and its racist. Y'all want to use our voices and stories, yet you don't trust us with your money unless a white elephant supervises us, especially vocal black women, our campaigns remains behind keyboards and smartphones. Thank you UK authorities, from the parliament to the police, you have been tremendous heroes in the fight against FGM. I am really jealous of the UK activists, UK healthcare workers from surgeons to clinic officers, you have treated survivors with great honor and compassion. Thank you to all that provides repairs of fistula, hernia, vagina keloids, fibroids, cysts and scar tissues, you are all life savers, survivors lives with one, if not more permanent pains, and did I hear that Mr Douche Bag the IV said WOMEN are the weaker sex? Lol, the jokes is on him as we are the strongest sex! UK you lead, we follow, while others sleep, now enough of word of mouth, we join efforts weave from talks to actions.
There is Breast ironing where a hot iron is used to flatten women breasts to stop looking too female and sexual! There is teeth uprooting from the lower jaw, two middle teeth with pliers, or a good manly fist blow, so a woman's smile can not be too sexy! There is body marking/patterns with red hot iron, or knife to barbecue a woman's facial skin, because having a clear beautiful skin is too sexual and know women are sexual objects, not sexual beings, I know y'all agree with me on that one, *Irony*. There is the shaving of women hair to bald, because hair is too sexual for women. In the westernized world (developed world) women are not valued either there is forced prostitution, (Brothels and Massage parlors), where women are pimped by pimps after they take all of their money. Women are discriminated on jobs and hiring. You will find a well educated intelligent women like Dr Tobe (and I thank you all if you insist, you can call me Dr Mashua) hired as janitors, while a man like Mr Douche Bag, who never even finished college, is the senior supervisor of finances and after few months he bankrupts the company people, loses income only to replace him with Mr Douche Bag II. And that is why this is a man's world, but it's nothing without a woman or a girl, because all these fools are doing, is destroying the world and because women are super strong and intelligent, we still clean after them and try to rebuild this broken world destroyed by broken men. God bless the women of this world, we are still strong, even when everyone would understand if we give up. We are beaten down, stepped on, trampled down, yet we rise up again determined to fight like a wounded tiger and that is the STRENGTH OF A WOMAN, AND THE SOUL OF A WOMAN IS NEVER DESTROYED!
Yes, yes women stand up honor yourself, clap for your self, praise your self, dance with yourself, because you are worth it and you are the giver of life. Only in a woman's womb can another human grow indiscriminately. Without us there would be no life. Without us this world would be ugly! A Lion is the king of the jungle yet he bows for his queen! Men should be thrown in the jungle to learn from the lion on how to treat women as queens or be eaten! Women we should learn to be brave like lionesses and demand to be treated like Queens or else. We know the value of our sexuality and we know who the real weaker sex is?*wink* God bless the women of this world and the gender sensitive men. Thank you very much Ambassador Lucy Mashua Sharp Global Ambassador for fighting FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION, and standing up for Women's rights. President of Mashua voice for the voiceless. At University of Oxford London March 7th 2015 read by Dr Tobe Levin on behalf of Me.

London Members of Parliament home affairs committee takes a stand against FGM and girl's at risk protection,early detection! Yes! Compiled reports by Standard London,Jacqueline Dale Shaw-Mashua Against FGM,Hilary Burrage-No FGMBook,and Amb Lucy Mashua

#CATCHTHISFGMITSUCKSTOBEYOU!-- Doctors, teachers and other public workers were today told that 'cultural sensitivities' must no longer obstruct the fight against female genital mutilation as MPs called for a national campaign to stamp out the practice. The Home Affairs Select Committee said that 'misplaced concerns' about challenging traditional practices within some ethnic communities were 'one of the main reason' why girls living in Britain were still suffering mutilation. The warnings came in a report on the scale of FGM, which calls for a national action plan and the regular medical examination of girls at 'high risk'. Changes in the law would include the introduction of 'FGM protection orders' and a legal duty for doctors to report mutilation. "FGM is not cultural, it is criminal; it is not tribal, it is torture; it is not an initiation but inhumane. Those who conduct this abuse, or silently standy by whilst it occurs, should and will be relentlessly pursued with the full force of the law"
My friend Member of Parliament Karl Turner the fight against FGM brought us together,He is one hell of a good person,I even asked him to meet with some of my UK partners of our GLOBAL FGM STATEMENT and he said "sure Mashua".Thank you chairman Keith Vaz MP,Mp Turner and all the MPs in home affairs office.Thank you for stamping the atrocious beast down! The report that was published July 3rd by House of Commons Home Affairs Committee. The Committee chaired by Keith Vaz MP, reflects much of what we (Honorary members of Global statement on FGM) proposed click here to view – compulsory PSHE, proper training for concerned practitioners, more support for community activists. The British Government’s FGM agenda has moved on, as activists globally and domestically have campaigned relentlessly for action to eradicate what the Home Affairs Committee (Vaz) Report tells us, even on conservative estimates, is probably ‘one of the most prevalent forms of severe child abuse in the UK‘ [para 14]. There is much in the Report to commend it. Amongst other measures the cross-party Committee affirms that FGM is embedded in patriarchy and calls for a national action plan – perhaps like that emerging in 2011? – to address this criminal gender-based violence and extreme form of child abuse [8]; proposes some amendment of the law to make prosecution easier [97] (mainly, to include people who are not permanently resident) chastises the police [76] for failing to make significant efforts to apprehend offenders – whether as principals or as accessories after the fact (but more could be said about the need for a diverse police force which understands and can read the signs from different communities); suggests that FGM victims should be given press and broadcast anonymity [36]; recommends the Multi-Agency Practice Guidelines are updated and placed on a statutory footing [45] (the Committee says they require active promotion, and queries why the General Practitioners are not signatories [44]); recognises the urgent need for more training of front-line professionals and practitioners [44] across the health, education and social services (though it fails to say by whom); calls for much more accurate information on where [11] and on how many girls and women FGM is carried out [12] (some systematic data collection has just been instigated); would like to see more personal and health – including psychological and psychiatric [107] – FGM care provision across the nation [106], as well as dedicated FGM shelters [110]; proposes clarification of the status of re-infibulation [88] and genital cosmetic surgery [89]; praises the third and voluntary sectors, and individual campaigners, for their steadfast work to raise awareness of FGM and says they need much more resourcing [104] (albeit not how this will be made available); proposes that all antenatal booking interviews include a question on the mother’s FGM status [56] and that any perceived risk of FGM be entered in baby girls’ Personal Child Health Record (Red Books) as well as alerting safeguarding authorities [57] (but the Committee doesn’t propose any single route for this alert); acknowledges the case for some enabling of medical examination when girls are thought to be, or to have been, at risk [37] (but with typical British reticence rejects routine examination of all small children such as in France, where many prosecutions have been secured – and where paediatric health checks are the norm); commends the Secretary of State for Education for his recent letter to schools on FGM (and suggests re-ending it, with a link to funding to encourage all recipients to read it) [66]; and … crucially, puts aside Ministerial reservations [63] to recommend that personal, social and health education (PSHE) must at last become part of the compulsory curriculum, and that all headteachers and child protection officers must have FGM and forced marriage safeguarding training, to be disseminated to staff before the end of 2014 [66]. The recommendation for compulsory PSHE, including information on FGM in high-prevalence areas [67] is a big breakthrough which, if it happens, will be widely celebrated by everyone with an informed view.
Thank you Hilary Burrage for candid informative report. UK way to lead this fight against FGM and protecting British girls.

As long as there is a law that bans FGM in Kenya the director of public prosecution in Kenya (DPP) Sir Keriakor Tobiko will not give in to the demands of some Kenyan members of parliament, government officials(chiefs) and Maasai women community leaders who are Pro-FGM excusing this atrocity as culture!By Ambassador Lucy Mashua Sharp

Despite resistance to ending FGM, the DPP Mr Tobiko has pledged to pursue the issue. I have no powers to abrogate legislation that has been enacted by parliament. For as long as that legislation is there, I will enforce it."DPP said While indicating that he would not waver on the issue! DPP and I come from the Maasai community and we know the road to end FGM is a bumpy ride and dangerous,I have been in talks with Mr Tobiko back and fourth he is easily accessible and a very humble straight forward person,We are brainstorming together week days and sometimes over the weekend as it happens and we are teaming up to take this fight to the next level.But first we start with our own community as charity begins at home. After many of you international Anti-FGM activists flooded my emails with question and on our ANTI-FGM facebook pages addressing your disappointment over the Pro-FGM demonstrations with over 2000 women and men community members from the Maasai demanding decriminalization of FGM in Kajiado.On June 12 to protest against a 2011 law specifically banning FGM.It was the second such demonstration held in the town this month.Well its not going to happen FGM is recognized as a human-right violation in the universal declaration on human-rights so as the global ambassador against FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION I argue Kenyan government to join DPP a government official who believes in human-rights a man who is passionately dedicated to fight this good fight Mr Tobiko is the first DIRECTOR OF PROSECUTION in Africa to appoint Anti-FGM officers in all the counties to fight and educate against the FGM,Anti-FGM activists in Kenya and I to restore the dignity of womanhood and stopping the robbing of childhood,It's torture,it's deadly,it's painful and it is a slow death sentence of women reproductive system. FGM is also illegal under the 2001 Children's Act, and a new bill on domestic violence due to be tabled in parliament is to introduce stiffer penalties for those who practice it. Do you think this is right? in the Maasai community do you know how many child brides and women bleed to death everyday giving birth and instant mutilation? Due to lack of proper and sufficient medical attention,Fistula cases are 2 out of 5 Maasai women is this worth it? Come on its not a curse it's called FGM complications a darkness that haunts a woman forever,Even when you get reconstructive surgery you never gain what was robbed from you!Is this fair? 2 out of 20 women suffer vagina keloids,HERE ARE MYTHS AND LIES FROM THE PIT OF HELL JUSTIFYING FGM.Maasai community in Kajiado who refuse to give up FGM views.Baby Malaika is only one year old but her mother has already decided that she will undergo the procedure,Baby Malaika's mother said her other four daughters faced the FGM after they reached the age of ten. She does not understand why FGM is illegal given the cultural belief that it averts a curse on the wider family. "If a girl is not mutilated,it is a curse," she said. "Her parents, her sisters and her brothers will die early. So if a girl refuses to be mutilated, she is cursing her family and she is an enemy and so are the anti-FGM activists. "These things are real, we have seen them happen. There is a man in this village who died after his unmutilated daughter became pregnant." Last month, a girl died in Kajiado after she underwent FGM and bled to death. Malaika's mother said the girl died because she was already cursed.(This doesn't make sense so you can undergo FGM and still remain cursed? what a myth)oooh wait a minute here comes an "explanation" and "justification" for the 1st degree MURDER!. "The curse caused the death of the girl. One of her parents wanted her to be mutilated and the other parent was opposed to it. That was already a curse. She died because of the disagreement. No one ever died because of FGM," Maliaka's mother said.
Another problem is that women who have not undergone FGM cannot be assisted during childbirth because the Maasai believe it is a curse to touch the blood of a female who has not been mutilated. Ben Seiya took part in the June 12 demonstration and also attended mediation talks with government representatives who travelled to Kajiado to listen to the protesters' concerns. He believes the practice will end one day, but he is not yet prepared to abandon his belief in it. "My wife is mutilated, and if I marry a second wife she has to be mutilated,"Said Ben. "If she is not mutilated when she is giving birth, no woman will help her as they cannot touch her blood. Also, you know that I will be belittled if I have a woman who is unmutilated for a wife." "
This one here is that child bride an FGM survivor giving birth imagine the unimaginable,With villages far away from nearest medical clinic and no doctor to take this child to an emergency C-section both the baby and the child mama will die.
The above picture shows an a stitched up vagina with a small hole for urine only to be reopened as soon as the first night as a child bride. Really any government that will be inhuman enough to allow such torturous treatment masking as culture to happen to her children they should face crimes against humanity! Any government official that supports this atrocity should be fired!In Kenya, chiefs are low-level administrators appointed as part of policing mechanisms to help maintain order in their local area. The June protests followed recent cases where chiefs have been charged with complicity in FGM in their own communities. Lekishon Moriaso, a chief serving in Kenya's Narok South District, appeared in court in April after his two daughters underwent FGM. He was charged with aiding the operation and with knowingly allowing it to take place in his home. Meanwhile, Joshua Kaaka, a chief in Kajiado, is facing charges of failing to report acts of FGM carried out against several girls in his area. DPP told me the two cases are still in court. Unconfirmed news is the chief who were charged by the prosecutor on FGM charges where even a girl bled to death lead and organised the PRO-FGM demonstration on June 12. When the Kenyan parliament debated the issue on June 17, members from some areas where FGM remains widespread called for the ban to be lifted. Jimmy Angwenyi, the member for Kitutu Chache North, told parliament that FGM was an important cultural institution and those practicing it should not face prosecution. "I wonder why this parliament wants to criminalise people's culture," he said. "The Kisii culture is that we must mutilate our girls." The member of parliament for Nyamira, Alice Chae, an ethnic Kisii who is a survivor of FGM, rounded on Angwenyi. "I wish he was a woman like me who underwent it [FGM] and is surviving," she said. "It is wrong, it is pathetic, and it is primitive."! I have said so many times that politicians and some members of parliament in Kenya value their political career over the lives of their constituents, They would rather bite their tongue not to say anything so that they don't lose the bloody votes,and some will promote FGM to please the mutilators for the bloody votes.I ask president Uhuru Kenyatta,1st Lady of Kenya,and 2nd Lady Mrs Ruto to not allow any pussy footing around dangerous cultures that destablise the future of women and children,Any culture that goes against the universal declaration of human-rights should be stopped asap!DPP sir Tobiko, ANTI-FGM activists on the ground, The newly appointed ANTI-FGM officers in the counties level by the office of director of prosecution and I the global ambassador for fighting against Female Genital Mutilation Lucy Mashua Sharp we will come up with educational guidelines to teach communities involved the true danger behind FGM and search for permanent solutions. I salute you director of public prosecution of Kenya Sir Keriakor Tobiko you have gone places in the fight against FGM where no one else have dared go,you are going against our community taboos and risking it all for the women and children of Kenya, I give you my word I will work with you side by side from the diaspora as technology has made it easier for real time results, as my fellow UK activist Hillary titled our statement on FGM "FIGHTING FGM FROM OUR KEY BOARD" am going to add "FIGHTING FGM FROM OUR SMART PHONES"
