A 14 year old girl was rescued by Ndilai and other peace activists from being married off to an elderly man against her will in Kajiado. We congratulate you Mr. Ndilai for the encouraging work to saving that child’s life and giving her a second opportunity to self determination. Many in her situation are having their rights as we breath in and out, violated and they cannot do anything because their fathers received dowry.
The culture that we love so much continues to steal our freedom and that of our sisters while we turn a blind eye and a deaf ear. It’s time to be realistic and stop early childhood marriages and all other harmful Maasai cultural practices. Join us to making this movement universal. MAASAI men against FGM is a newly started Facebook group which goes out to attract particularly Maasai men with intent to create opinion around FGM and its implication on fundamental rights of our sister.
As Maasai men, we are proud to say we stand against Female genital mutilation in all its forms! We Crave for NOLL tolerance to dangerous culture.Eradicate FGM and women discriminatory traditions in Maasailand now.
Whichever side you want to turn it, early childhood marriages is morally wrong. It consequently leads to child enslavement. Let us all fight for the rights of our sisters, our daughters and our dear mothers. It concerns me! It is my duty to eradicate retrogressive and harmful culture and traditions.
I devote my life to eradicating all sorts of discrimination against women in Maasailand, to begin with. This duty makes me not only a great man, but a caring father! This call is for real and very urgent. It is very significant for the survival of the Maa society as a people. Great men fight for the rights of their people, both male and female! Stop FGM now!
