Former "cutters" from the Pokot tribe stand together. They used to make 1,000 Kenyan shillings for each girl they performed female genital mutilation (FGM) on, making it a significant form of income. Female genital mutilation (FGM) has been outlawed in Uganda since 2010, but aid workers and police say it's still being practiced by tribes in the northeast, including the Pokots, Sebei, Tepeth and Kadama.
