They took to the streets in a five kilometer walk protest from maralal town to yare campsite. The protestors are calling for stake holders not to limit their campaigns to seminars held in hotels in Maralal but to extend them to remote areas of the region where the practice is deeply rooted. They are also calling for a strategic plan to educate both women and girls on the best way to shun the practice.
