A stern warning has been issued against men in Teso North District who will be found to have impregnated young primary school girls.
The caution was issued by Katakwa assistant chief Erineyo Majune following the rampant cases of girls dropping out of school because of unwanted pregnancy.
Addressing mourners in a burial ceremony of a former Police Officer in Rwatama village of Teso North District, Majune disclosed that a large number of primary school girls have terminated going to school due to pregnancy and called on parents to remain vigilant with their children to help them pursue their education.
The administrator condemned the act saying it is an evil act that prompts deterioration of education and decline in development standards in the society. He added that it was sad to see married men luring primary school girls with gifts and eventually impregnating them and termed the act “satanic, lack of humanity and ethics”.
‘’How will one feel when his own daughter was impregnated by an old man? Where is your conscious?’’ paused the chief.
He urged parents to be on the forefront to guide and counsel their children in a bid to curb the increased cases that are being experienced in the region.
He regretted the recent incident in Katakwa primary school where five girls in classes 2, 5 and 8 were impregnated by fellow classmates and married men.
The chief vowed to probe the issue and have the culprits brought on book and dealt with as an example for the rest to emulate. He further asked parents and teacher to embrace a joint responsibility and efforts to help the girl child get education.
