Parents from Mumoni Sub County in Kitui County will be prosecuted if they fail to prevent their daughters from Female Genital Mutilation (FGM).
The announcement comes after it emerged that the number of school girls who have been subjected to FGM is increasing in Mwingi North Constituency.
Area Assistant County Commissioner, Mwangangi Kimatu said school holidays are a time of particular risk for many girls.
Kimatu condemned the act saying its uncouth and inhumane to circumcise a female child, a practice he said is escalating in the area.
