1. According to Report submitted today by the Inspector-General of Police (IG) to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) a total of

 FGM cases have been taken to Court from

 todate. 2. Of those cases,
33
 are pending before Court;
16

withdrawals. 3. The reported cases arise from the following Counties:
Narok; Kitui; West-pokot; Meru; Tharaka-Nithi; Embu; Elgeyo Marakwet; Kisii; Migori; Marsabit and Kiambu.

Non-reporting of the crime;
 
Cultural beliefs and attitudes;
 
Non-cooperation with Law Enforcement Agencies;
 
Fear and intimidation of complainants, witnesses and victims;
 
Lack of information on the dangers of fgm.
