See the story here. The bill passed without opposition, which doesn’t tell me much since I know roughly zero about politics in Uganda – either politicians there are trying to crack down for real or they’re just pretending to care. It’s also not clear what effect, if any, such a bill will have in practice, since:
Female genital mutilation is illegal in more than a dozen African countries, although laws are rarely enforced.
Not sure what good a law that’s not enforced does to these poor girls. If you know more than I do about this situation (which, in the immortal words of Clint Eastwood, doesn’t narrow the field very much) please add your bit in the comments.by
