A Mutilator in West Pokot county was yesterday given a Sh40,000 cow for quitting the exercise. Cheposonjo Lokai Tarau who used to practice Female Genital Mutilation abandoned the job two years ago after being arrested several times. “l decided to leave the job two years ago since the money never assisted me at all,” she said. Speaking during the rewarding ceremony in Makutano, the Executive Director of Setat, Lillian Plapan appealed to the community to shun the practice saying it hinders girls from accessing quality education.

Seriously? are you kidding me? how about taking her bloody buttocks to jail? what do the girls and woman who have suffered in her arms get?,fistula repair?,reconstructive surgery? ooh am sorry victims and survivors are not to be rewarded only the bloody mutilators ,!!! this sucks!!
How can you justify that you made a living out of mutilating female genitals and killing them? and then you get a reward? for real?. sick psycotics!!! So after they commit the most horrific unforgivable crimes we reward them?.
