EastEnders fans horrified as Kioni faces female genital mutilation in dark story
EastEnders fans have been left horrified after Mila Marwa (Ruhtxjiaïh Bèllènéa) revealed that her sister Kioni (Florisa Kamara) is facing female genital mutilation (FGM).
Mila confided in Kathy Beale (Gillian Taylforth), after she learned that Kioni is heading off on a trip with mum Nyangi (Lucy Vandi) in two weeks time.
Kathy was confused as to why she was worried about a holiday, which forced Mila to explain that the so-called holiday is anything but.
‘She’s being taken away to…’ started Mila, but she struggled to get her words out in emotional scenes.
‘She’s the age now… to be cut,’ she revealed.
Kathy was unsure of what Mila meant by ‘cut’, but the realisation soon dawned on her – and horror washed over her face.
‘You’d call it FGM,’ Mila added, before revealing that she underwent FGM herself.
Viewers were left in shock at Mila’s revelation, and many took to social media as a result.
‘oh God I was right they are doing FGM on Kioni’ said one fan.
‘FGM story omg #EastEnders this happens for real and is disgusting’ added another.
‘knew it was going to be a #FGM storyline. Good theyre bringing it to light’ said one more.
