FGM demographic in Kenya you can see 4 of the tribes that practice FGM over 90% and my tribe is among the top.

At the end you will see my good friend and member of parliament Hon Lena Chebee Kilimo ...that we worked tireless with other Women members of Parliment, Hon Alicen Chelaite,Hon Beth Mugo ,Hon Cecily Mbarire, and Hon Njoki Ndungu....and the 4000 women from all over the republic Kenya representing all 42 communities and seven provinces that we convened at KENYATTA INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE CENTRE (KICC) to put an End to VAW against women and misuse of women funds by some large organisation and male politicians!!!!! O.M.G I will never forget the tear gas and police brutality as we marched peacefully and singing women freedom songs (Wamama misilale lalelale wamama msilala bado mapambano...bado mapambano bado mapambano x4) translation "Women do not sleep please don't sleep the figh is still on ...the fight is still on x4"...few days later we were in court ..14 strong women and guess who was the leader the youngest and the most vocal ? hahahaha lol....... ooh the long nights ,threats, and sleepless fearful nights:(.
