Of the 120 different ethnic groups in Tanzania, FGM had always been widely practised by 12 ethnic groups living in seven of Tanzania's 24 regions: the Gogo, the Rangi and the Sandawi of Dodoma, the Nyaturu of Singida, the (hagga of Kilimanjaro, the Waarusha of Arusha, the Luguru of Morogoro, the Maasai, the Iraqw
, the Barbaig and the Hazabe of Manyara, and the Kurya of Mara region.
