Child husband was in love

A THIRTEEN-YEAR-OLD boy of Nsonga Primary School in Chief Mabumba’s area in Mansa district who married his 11-year-old school-mate says he did so because he was deeply in love.

The child couple of Nsonga village had to drop out of school but the boy now says he is ready to return to his studies because he has found out that life is not as easy as he initially thought.
The boy, who has been withdrawn from the marriage by the Mansa District Child Protection Committee, lived with his wife for over three months but says providing home essentials for her proved to be challenging.
