    Somalia has the opportunity to fight FGM and end child marriage – Mlambo-Ngcuka


     

    The Executive Director of the UN gender equality and empowerment agency for women and girls (UN Women), Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, revealed that Somalia has the opportunity to fight Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and end child marriage.

     

    Mlambo-Ngcuka has made this known on Thursday and told the UN Security Council (UNSC) in New York that the Horn of Africa country also had a once-in-a-generation chance to establish lasting peace and gender equality as the country had made great strides in working towards gender equality.

     

    This progress, she underscored, has brought many “important voices” to Somali politics.
