The Switch

by Mary Karooro Okurut

The Switch is the story of the travails of Chelimo , a brilliant young girl from Kapchorwa, Eastern Uganda, whose life, when she is circumcised, in accordance with the tradition of her tribe, takes a horrendous turn. Chelimo’s struggles in the life are at odds with the promises she was given at circumcision and as a government minister, she embarks on a delicate personal crusade to ensure that the girls of her tribe do not ever have to face the dangers posed by the knife. But not everyone is happy with her crusade.
