Condoms in schools are misplaced – Mabumba

SITEMBILE SIWAWA, Lusaka
DEPUTY Minister of Education David Mabumba says calls for the distribution of condoms in schools are misplaced but rather girls who fall pregnant should be given the option to complete their education.
Addressing journalists during a press briefing in Lusaka recently, Mr Mabumba said allowing the distribution of condoms in schools will not reduce the incidences of teen pregnancies.
He noted that schools are there for learning purposes and should remain like that.
Mr Mabumba said “there are better options that are available for schoolgirls that they can take advantage of when they fall pregnant like the re-entry policy”.
Sex education is another option that schoolgirls can benefit from.
