Rising abortion rate worries chief

HEADMAN Kasheta of Mungule village in Chibombo district is concerned about the rising cases of abortions and early marriages in the area.
He said instead of concentrating on education, several girls are involved in sexual relations which result into unwanted pregnancies or early marriages.
“Several girls leave their homes pretending to be going to school, yet they met up with men,” Headman Kasheta said.
He said when the girls fall pregnant, they opt to have abortions for fear of what the community will think.
