With the issue of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), i have always been bitter. I could not possibly understand the legitimate reasons for the practice. And I feel that the health risks and psychological trauma outweigh the reason. why? I had questions. Why can’t the government eradicate such heinous practice?
