CHILD PREGNANCIES: WE ARE THE CHANGEMAKERS
We commemorate the 16 Days of Activism against gender-based violence against the backdrop of resurfacing cases of child abuse, raising fears of even more cases hidden away from the limelight. The recent cases of child pregnancies which occurred in Bulawayo and Bindura left the nation in shock. This time the cases involved 9-year-olds, with the former reported to have been raped by a close relative, while the latter was raped by two 17-year-old boys. What is heart breaking is that Anna Machaya’s case is still fresh in our minds. How do we protect our Girls as a Nation?
