However, we should not forget that there are some people in Kapchorwa who value it and who get agitated when the practice is assailed, especially by non-Sabiny. These are influential people who wield a lot of influence in their local areas. Each time they are annoyed, the number of girls being circumcised that season goes up! These people need to be handled tactfully. Some of us are determined to see that female circumcision stops and we are already in touch with the various groups in the district. We feel that the proper approach is through dialogue and not legalistic means.

Dialogue will do the trick
