Ouganda - Les petites filles de 3 à 12 ans fuguent pour éviter l'excision !
Uganda 400 children in Amudat flee their homes for fear of FGM as young as 3years old:-((!! .
More than 400 school going children in Amudat District have fled their
homes in the last 10 months for fear of being subjected to Female
Genital Mutilation (FGM). The children, aged between three and 12, have abandoned cattle keeping and enrolled in schools.
Most of the children are admitted to Kalas Boys and Girls primary
schools in Amudat Town Council. A few are receiving their education at
Katabok Primary School, among others. Lotai Chepkiror, now in
Primary Three at Kalas Girls Primary School, says she fled her home
after seeing her sister die after undergoing the practice some four
years ago. Chepkiror, who says the practice has made several girls to
lose their lives, is appealing to the government to be tough on parents
who offer their daughters for FGM.
Mr Stephen Nsubuga Bewaayo, the Resident District Commissioner, says
some parents have been jailed for forcing their daughters to undergo the
practice. The district inspector of schools, says education authorities
have been overwhelmed by the big number of children running away from
their homes, fearing that the number could have doubled by the end of
the year. Mr Luke adds that cases of children fleeing their homes
rise between July and September during the mutilation season. He appeals
to the government to put in place facilities that would support the
children to stay in school. My take :If a 3years old baby can flee
her home , Then something is really really wrong with this world !!! I
have no words but just very angry and very crying uncontrollably I wish I
could rescue and be a mother to all those babies!! The global
ambassador for fighting FGM and standing for women rights. Lucy Mashua
