1,833 girls aged 10-19 impregnated within 90 days in one Ugandan district.

Tororo district in Uganda has reported a sudden rise in teenage pregnancy in a period of three months hence threatening to cut short- the pursuit for education amongst girls of school going age, Daily Monitor UG reported on Tuesday June 8.

The information was contained in data presented by the district bio-statician, Mr Ali Mugerwa, during a district stakeholder’s dialogue held June 4 by National Association of Women Organisation of Ugandan.

According to the data, 1,833 girls aged between 10-19 years were reported pregnant within a period of 90 days.

“The highlighted cases of teenage pregnancy are much less than the actual number because these are just those who managed to go for antenatal services yet a big number fear to go for antenatal services thinking that they will be laughed at.’’ Mugerwa said.

He noted that the data, involving cases of defilement by close family members- was extracted from the district health management information system sourced from public health facilities.

“All the people who impregnated these innocent children need to be arraigned before court but it’s becoming a challenge as some of the parents connive with the suspects,” he said.

He blamed both parents and the ineffective justice system for the prevailing crisis adding that if parents were playing their roles well these would not have happened.

Ms Pauline Nabwire, the program’s officer at National Association of Women Organization of Uganda attributes the surge to poor parenting coupled with greed for dowry, poverty, peer pressure and values reinforced by tradition.

“Most of the communities here are poor with majority of them not in position to have a meal in a day and as a result parents end up forcing their daughters to marry so that they are given bride price” she says.1,833 girls aged 10-19 impregnated within 90 days in one Ugandan district.
