Miss World Kenya to campaign against FGM

Miss World Kenya to campaign against FGM
Nairobi, 23rd December 2016
The campaign against female genital mutilation (FGM) got a boost today when Miss World Kenya 2016, Evelyne Njambi Thungu pledged to work in close collaboration with the Anti-FGM Board in its quest to eradicate the practice in Kenya.
She said FGM was an outdated cultural practice that denies girls and women dignity and opportunities of a better future.
“FGM has to be a thing of the past and every girl deserves a chance to choose the path her life will take,” said Ms Njambi.
She was speaking at a Nairobi hotel where she was hosted for a breakfast meeting by the Ministry of Sports, Culture and the Arts in honour of her achievement at recent the Miss World Beauty Pageant in Maryland, USA where she was ranked fifth in the beauty with a purpose category.
Ms Njambi attributed her achievement in the pageant to the anti-FGM message noting that her competitors were equally beautiful.
She said Miss World 2016 Stephanie del Valle from Puerto Rican will visit Kenya soon to boost her campaign against FGM.
Miss Njambi appreciated the support she got from Kenyans in general and the Anti-FGM Board in particular.
Sports, Culture and Arts Principal Secretary who hosted the meeting, Mr. Joe Okudo urged the reigning Mr. World Kenya, Kevin Owiti who was present to join Ms Njambi in her advocacy against FGM.
In her remarks, the chair of the Anti-FGM Board Ms Jebii Kilimo called upon Ms Njambi to continue championing the rights of girls and women who are at risk of undergoing FGM noting that she had the backing of the law in her new role.
She said that the Prohibition of Female Genital Mutilation Act, 2011 legitimizes Ms Njambi’s campaigns against FGM.
Also present included the Principal Secretary, State Department of Devolution, Mwanamaka Amani, Miss World Kenya 2008, Ruth Kinuthia, Miss World Kenya 2014, Idah Nguma and the franchise holder for Ms World Kenya, Terry Mungai among others
