Thousands of girls are subjected to FGM followed by parade in month-long cutting event in Kenya

thousands of girls are subjected to fgm followed by parade in month long cutting event in kenya

Thousands of girls are being subjected to FGM and paraded down streets after mass cutting ceremonies in Kenya.  

More than 100 girls in Migori County have been cut each day since the last week of September, according to a local NGO.

Female genital mutilation (FGM) is the ritual cutting or removal of some or all of the exterior female genitalia for non-medical reasons.

Despite efforts by local NGOs and the international community to eradicate the practice, it continues in some communities.  

Video footage reportedly from Kuria West – now part of Migori County – showed a number of young girls in tinsel-covered blankets, some with balloons attached, being paraded down a street by a group of men to the accompaniment of music.

Reports said some of the men wielded machetes in an apparent deterrent to police.

Natalie Robi Tingo, Founder of Msichana Empowerment Kuria, an NGO that works to end FGM, said it was uncertain how long the cuttings would go on for.

‘The cut began the last week of September. We thought it would have finished by Saturday so that has not been the case. 

‘Things have been really bad and we hope that this week will be the final week. 

‘The cut has been very public in that we see girls walking the road being paraded.’

Robi Tingo added that her organisation was due to meet with the Kenyan Ministry of Gender on Monday to address the situation.

On October 14, Kenya’s Daily Nation newspaper reported that at least 80 girls from Kuria West had not reported back to school after running away from home over fears of being subjected to FGM. 

The girls, aged between nine and 13, reportedly sought refuge at Taranganya Girls’ Secondary School as the Kuria community’s ‘circumcision season’ set in despite efforts by the Kenyan government to crack down on those promoting the practice.  

A number of the girls expressed worries that they would be disowned for refusing to undergo the agonising ordeal and that they would not be able to continue their schooling without the support of their families. 

However, a member of the NGO protecting the girls said their parents had promised to take their daughters back without subjecting them to FGM and would be monitored to ensure they complied with the agreement.  

Many girls who are subjected to FGM (like the two above seen wearing tinsel during a parade) face health issues and are taken out of school and forced into early marriage

Girls who are subjected to FGM face short-term health issues including severe pain, shock, excessive bleeding, infections and difficulty in passing urine.  

The brutal ritual can also have serious long-term consequences for the girl’s sexual, reproductive and mental health. 

Aside from the health concerns, FGM also impacts the opportunities available to girls who are subjected to it as many never return to school and are forced into early marriages.

Education is seen as powerful tool in combating beliefs around FGM but Nimco Ali, CEO of The Five Foundation – a global partnership to end FGM – said efforts to eradicate the practice had been further complicated by the coronavirus pandemic. 

‘Before COVID-19 Kenya was one of the most successful countries in terms of ending FGM. 

‘We have now lost so much of that progress due to schools being closed and these mass FGM events happening. 

‘This has broken my heart and shows that now more than ever we need to get funding to local activists to protect [girls].’

According to the United Nations, FGM is internationally recognised as ‘a violation of the human rights, the health and the integrity of girls and women.’

Despite this, it persists and is particularly concentrated in 30 African and Middle Eastern countries.

However the problem is a global one as it also occurs in some countries in Asia and Latin America and in immigrant communities worldwide.    

UN figures state that in 2020 alone, some 4.1 million girls around the world are at risk of undergoing FGM.

Kenyan law expressly forbids FGM and criminalises anyone involved in arranging or carrying it out as well as anyone who fails to report an incident under the FGM Act 2011.

While some arrests have been made and cases have gone as far as being brought to court, implementation and enforcement remain a challenge due to lack of resources, difficulties reaching remote areas and a reluctance by some judges to implement sentences. 

What is female genital mutilation (FGM)?

Female genital mutilation (FGM) involves the partial or total removal of external female genitalia or other injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons.

The practice has no health benefits for girls and women and is not supported by any religious text.

FGM can cause severe bleeding and problems urinating, and later cysts, infections, as well as complications in childbirth and increased risk of newborn deaths.

More than 200 million girls and women alive today have been cut in 30 countries in Africa, the Middle East and Asia where FGM is concentrated.

The practice also takes place in some Latin American countries and among immigrant communities worldwide. 

FGM is mostly carried out on young girls between infancy and the age of 15.

Girls are commonly taken out of school after being subjected to the practice and forced into early marriage. 

FGM is a violation of the human rights of girls and women.

The World Health Organization is opposed to all forms of FGM, and is opposed to health care providers performing FGM.

Despite being illegal in most countries, the practice persists as implementation and enforcement of laws are complicated by practical and cultural factors. 

Treatment of health complications of FGM in 27 high prevalence countries costs $1.4 billion per year.

Playboy son of Equatorial Guinea’s despot leader flaunts £38k-a-night holiday

playboy son of equatorial guineas despot leader flaunts 38k a night holiday

The playboy son of Equatorial Guinea’s despot leader has been flaunting his £38,000-a-night holiday while his people live off £2 a day – just one year after his fleet of 25 supercars was impounded and sold off. 

Teodorin Obiang, the vice-president of Equatorial Guinea, arrived at the private island of Voavah in the Maldives – a recognised UNESCO world heritage site – earlier this month.

The 50-year-old has since documented the luxury trip on Instagram to his 100,000 followers despite his country recently being plunged into economic crisis due to the coronavirus pandemic as well as the sudden drop in the price of crude oil – which provides about three quarters of state revenue.

Teodorin Obiang, the vice-president of Equatorial Guinea, arrived at the private island of Voavah in the Maldives – a recognised UNESCO world heritage site – earlier this month 

Mr Obiang sailed across to the five-acre resort in the Baa Atoll, currently managed by the Four Seasons, on his 76-metre yacht Ebony Shine.

The $115million (£89m) vessel, which has a staff of 22, was identified in aerial shots of the island moored among the surrounding reef. 

But Mr Obaing was only recently reunited with the luxury yacht after it was seized at the request of Swiss courts who were investigating allegations of money laundering.

It was held for three years before the government of Equatorial Guinea paid $1.3millon (£1m) in fees and successfully argued it belonged to its Ministry of National Defence and that it was used for training people in the navy.

The lavish trip comes as Equatorial Guinea, which is currently run by Mr Obiang’s father, is facing a double economic shock after being impacted by the coronavirus pandemic as well as a plunge in the price of crude oil.

The country, Africa’s only Spanish speaking nation, has become the continent’s number three oil producer but experts say the vast majority of the population has not benefited from the energy revenue boom.

The population currently stands at around 1.3 million with 76.8 per cent living in poverty, according to a study by the World Bank

Many of those are forced to survive on less than £2 per day and UNICEF found that more than half still lacks access to clean water.   

In 2019, the United Nations Development Programme ranked Equatorial Guinea 144 out of 189 countries in its Human Development Report, combining life expectancy, education and per-capita income data.   

The country’s current leader, Mr Obiang’s 78-year-old father, is the world’s longest-serving president.

He seized power in 1979 after overthrowing his uncle, Francisco Macías Nguema, who was later executed. 

Human RightsWatch, as well as other independent groups over the past 40 years, have documented his government’s repression of civil society and political opposition groups.

They have described him as one Africa’s most brutal dictators and claimed that the ‘dictatorship under President Obiang has used an oil boom to entrench and enrich itself further at the expense of the country’s people’. 

In the 1990s and early 2000s, the president and the members of his party repeatedly won re-election by lopsided margins in ballots that were fraught with charges of fraud. 

He has also not been shy about the family’s wealth after paying $55million (£42.5m) for a Boeing 737 jet complete with gold-plated lavatory fittings.  

In 2004, a plot relying on foreign mercenaries to replace President Obiang with exiled opposition leader Severo Moto was uncovered.

History of Equatorial Guinea

Equatorial Guinea is located on west coast of Africa consists of the mainland territory of Río Muni as well as five islands – Bioko, Corisco, Great Elobey, Little Elobey and Annobón.

It is formerly a colony of Spain before achieving independence in October 1968.

In 1995, Equatorial Guinea struck oil and has since become one of sub-Sahara’s biggest oil producers.

Rights organisations have described the two post-independence leaders as among the worst abusers of human rights in Africa.

The first president Francisco Macias Nguema, who reigned from 1968 until his overthrow in 1979 – prompted a third of the population to flee.

Mr Obiang Nguema then seized power and has since become Africa’s longest serving leader.

But he has been described by rights organisations as one Africa’s most brutal dictators.       

It has been reported that many in the country are forced to eke out a living on about £2 a day.

By 2008, a court in Malabo, the capital of Equatorial Guinea, sentenced British mercenary Simon Mann to 34 years in prison for his role in the affair.

But President Obiang pardoned him the following year.

The younger Mr Obiang was only 10 when his father seized power.

In the 1980s, the new leader’s son was enrolled in the Ecole des Roches in Normandy, northwest France, which prides itself on educating the offspring of leaders from all over the world.

His father appointed him as minister of forests in 1997 in his tropical homeland even before he had turned 30 years old.

Mr Obaing held the government post until 2012 and had been considered the ‘godfather’ of the lucrative timber industry before oil exports brought increasing wealth. 

In 2016, President Obiang – freshly elected with more than 90 percent of the vote – named his son vice president.

Last year, the younger Mr Obiang had his fleet of 25 supercars – including five Bentleys, seven Ferraris, three Lamborghinis and a Bugatti Veyron – impounded and sold off by the authorities in Switzerland.

The sale, held by auctioneer Bonhams, fetched £21.9million with the proceeds going to a charity to benefit the people of oil-rich Equatorial Guinea.

The standout lot in the auction was a white-and-cream Lamborghini Veneno roadster, one of only nine such versions produced, that has been driven only 325 kilometers (201 miles).

In 2018, Mr Obiang was also ensnared in legal trouble elsewhere when Brazilian officials said $16 million (£13million) in undeclared cash and luxury watches that were seized from a delegation he led may have been part of an effort to launder money embezzled from the country’s government. 

And a Parisian court in 2017 convicted the president’s son in absentia of embezzling tens of millions of euro from his government and laundering the proceeds in France.

The court handed down a three-year suspended jail sentence and a suspended €30million fine. 

Authorities also seized his assets in France valued at well over €100million – including a six-floor mansion in Paris, an antique clock and fine wines worth thousands of pounds a bottle.

‘This verdict against Teodorin Obiang is further proof that rampant government corruption in Equatorial Guinea has robbed its people of their country’s oil wealth,’ Sarah Saadoun, business and human rights researcher at Human Rights Watch, said at the time.

Mr Obiang had tried to use his appointment as vice-president to argue in vain at the International Court of Justice in The Hague that he had diplomatic immunity and could not be prosecuted in France.

But nonetheless he was seemingly unfazed by the court’s verdict and 40-minutes later posted a video clip on social media showing him on a luxury motorbike in the capital Malabo.

bristol pubs sunday roast is so popular it has a three year waiting list

A pub’s roast dinner has such rave reviews there’s a three-year waiting list to get a table.

Punters wanting a seat at The Bank Tavern, in Bristol’s City Centre, will have to wait until April 2023 to try its award-winning Sunday lunch.

But while such a long waiting list is usually the preserve of a highly sought after Michelin Star establishment – with prices to match – a roast at the 19th Century boozer is less than £10. 

One course consisting of beef, pork, chicken or vegetarian option served with roast potatoes, swede puree, Yorkshire pudding, creamy leeks and seasonal vegetables costs £9.95, while three course will set diners back £14.95.

All the meat is sourced locally from West Country farms, with the landlord occasionally serving rabbit or deer he caught himself, with regular customers also donating any surplus from their allotment to be served, according to The Sun. 

The Tavern only has seven tables with space for up to 40 diners, meaning the chefs cook around 160 roasts a week.

As it’s so busy, diners are asked to vacate their tables within an hour and 45 minutes.    

One course consisting of beef, pork, chicken or vegetarian option served with roast potatoes, swede puree, Yorkshire pudding, creamy leeks and seasonal vegetables is just £9.95, while three course will set diners back £14.9

A spokesman told the Sun: ‘There is nothing standard about our Sunday roasts.’

‘We don’t repeat the same menu and although we always have beef we also do pork, some vegetarian options and perhaps venison or poultry.

‘We change the starters and desserts weekly so the menu is never the same.’

Last year, the pub’s roast was named the best in Britain by the Observer’s Food Monthly Awards, and it also topped the  2018 Bristol Good Food Awards. 

Speaking to the paper at the time, landlord Sam Gregory explained he wants to keep it a real community pub.

‘I don’t want to profiteer. My parents struggled to take us all out but they felt it was important. I never wanted price to be a barrier to good food,’ he explained.
