Love of money is killing girls in Malawi

81

Girls in Malawi, in their teens have been urged to come to a halt on the ‘too-much’ love of money, a thing which is landing them in miscellaneous bad behaviors.

Recently, Authorities in Rumphi district advised teenage girls to desist from the tendency of loving money excessively saying the propensity makes them prone to unwanted pregnancies and contracting of some deadly sexually transmitted infections including HIV/AIDS.

The remarks were made on Saturday at Mhuju in the district during a sensitization campaign which was organized by the Mphoka Henga Valley Development Forum.

The aim was to warn girls on the dangers of premarital sex which is believed to be fuelled by the excessive love of money among girls of these days.

Secretary for the forum, Naomi Nyirongo, noted with great concern the increasing number of teenage pregnancies in the district saying they are forcing many young girls to drop out of school.

“Some are prone to HIV/AIDS because some men attract them with money and sleep with them without even protecting themselves. Most of them are very little girls who are easily coaxed with money. It’s a very pathetic development indeed,” said Nyirongo.

It is believed that some wealthy men from Mzuzu and other surrounding areas go to the area and convince some girls with money in exchange for sex. Most of the girls being school going but from very poor backgrounds brave the dangers of unprotected sex and open their legs to these big men.

Nyirongo also expressed worry that the soon-to-begin construction of Njakwa, Livingstonia, and Chitimba road might accompany some negative impacts on the lives of their daughters.

“You know girls of nowadays are very much attracted with money, so our fear is that as these people will start the road project here our daughters might be turned to their sex agents. Our advice is that our girls must stay in school and stop loving money much,” added Nyirongo.

In some areas where related developments have been taking place like in Chitipa and Kayerekera in Karonga, cases of rampant pregnancies have been reported because the visiting workers were usually finding comfort in the available girls within the areas.

During the construction of Karonga-Chitipa road, some girls from the surrounding areas were giving in to the visiting contractors who were making love with them in exchange for money. There is fear that the same might happen in Rumphi.

  1. I have tried it wth 3 Girls to discourage them but it has failed. Giving them moneys to xool more than K500 per day but they stil go for money love. Let them express their freedoms as their birth right the way u preach to them without minding the consequences. Am tired of these issues about Girls, beleive & preach about it for the sake of ur allowonces but will take u no where. Others have preached it before but it has proved futile.

  7. vuto si atsikana koma vuto ndiomwe amapeleka ndalama kwa atsikana……come to thnk of it if u men ddnt giv money to galz how wil they luv money????

  8. In my opinion, I think its not poverty, most of them, their parents are rich people. But I think poor knowledge they get from the families of nowdays. In short forgeting our culture and traditional believes is the cause.

    • I CONCUR WITH U PETER GULUMBA. DATS WHERE INCULCATING VALUES BECOMES IMPORTANT.IF PARENTS CNT TEACH THEIR CHLDRN REAL VALUES OF LIFE WER BOUND TO HV TO REAP MORE PREGNANT GIRLS

  9. The problem is most girls dont want to accept who they are and where they come from.they want to associate with people from well to do families end result they want to be like them at the end of the day they start prostitution..forgeting anzawowo zawo amatenga from makolo awo…very sad..girls,we should always keep in mind who we are.dont compare yourselves with anybody..you are who you are.AIDS IS REAL..

  11. Not loving money, thats not right ! Who is loving a snake or a crocodile? If sugar is K1000 pack do you think people can manage to buy.thats why these young children are now at vast .

  12. No the problem is fashion not money, these girl are into fashion and when any trend comes out they don’t wanna be left behind, hence roomaging cash lyk thirst dogs, had it been that these desighner things nzolimitsa bwenzi mukunena pano atsikana onse ali mmindamu kulimitsa swag, U dealing with a minor thing, take out the major and that’s freedom of dressing then our queens will come back to sense

  13. Not onr malawian teen girls hav drawn to this motive but its circulated all around the universe and we can say that there’s one guiding rule drives them to immoralities.So,what most crucial criteria must be taken to cope with this vices generated in most pre-matured girls to re-generate good mad-caps ways?

  16. The big problem is the leaders which we have Nowadays,very bad examples how do you look at gay right in Malawi? Money has really affected the country just because of silly leaders who don’t even bother about the New generation and the world didn’t change but our behaviours has really changed.
