Fight child marriages – First Lady

CHARLES CHISALA, Paris
FIRST Lady Esther Lungu has said there is need to strengthen the fight against early motherhood and child marriages because they are a threat to development.
Mrs Lungu said Zambia is engaged in the promotion of the rights of the girl-child and is looking for willing partners to work with for the good of society.
She was speaking yesterday after touring Villa Jeanne Maternity Centre which houses young mothers in Paris, France.
The maternity centre caters for mothers aged between the age of 16 and 18 years and their babies.
CFPE Centre president Jean-Pierre Debuisson said the young mothers are only allowed to leave when their children reach the age of three years.
