In Kenya, very young girls are getting genitally mutilated on a very large scale. In secluded places, hundreds of girls are every day waiting for their turn. Quiet and scared, tense and ignorant about their inevitable fate. The women who do the circumcisions slip in ordinary houses early in the morning or late at night to do their horrible work. However, this practice has been legally forbidden in Kenya for ten years. Officially, there are no more female circumcisions in Kenya, but the truth is completely different.
