The government of Kenya had been called upon to come out and help facilitate the learning programme among the girls rescued from the FGM in kuria region now that schools were opened for the grade four, grade eight pupils and the form four candidates.
That was according to Kuria west sub county children officer Mr.James Omondi who said that they were now facing challenges on how the rescued girls were going to learn since some of them fear going back to their homes for being subjected to the cut.
While speaking to Dala fm over the matter Mr.Omondi said that despite commitment agreement among the parents of the girls on the matter they were not sure of the safety of the children at home appealing that if the government can help facilitate the learning process of the children in a bid to have them also be at par with other learners in schools.
He at the same time said that they were now facing numerous challenges in dealing with the girls rescue operations since some girls disguise as boys a move he said they had detected as they had enhanced the surveillance and would not let any child to go through such illegal practice despite being in dilemma of them going to school also as required.
That however came even as three people were arrested yesterday after engaging in FGM and taken to Kehancha law courts before being released on a bond of Ksh.200,000 each with 7 children whom they intended to take for the cut rescued and taken to a rescue centre a move which the sub children’s officer Mr.James Omondi said that they would enhance such Operations just to safe the lives of the young girls for their bright future despite facing numerous challenges.
