…11 girls reportedly pregnant at a primary school in Mzimba

Parents in Mzimba district have spoken against the ongoing distribution of condoms to learners in primary schools saying the move is fueling sexual activities among pupils in the country.

The concerns have been raised following revelations that about 11 girls have reportedly been impregnated by their schoolmates at the school.

Cause for concern?

Over the past months some nongovernmental organizations working on reproductive health have been conducting series of condom distribution exercises in primary schools across the northern region.

According to the organizations, the move is aimed at eradicating spread of sexually transmitted infections among young people whom they say are usually sexually active.

But owing to the pregnancy reports, some parents in Mzimba have asked authorities to stop the organisations from distributing the condoms.

Speaking on Saturday at a meeting organized by the school committee under the Parents Teachers Association (PTA), parents emphasized that the distribution of condoms is encouraging sex among learners.

“This is fueling immoral behavior among our children. You find them always talking about girls and sex. We don’t want the distribution of condoms here, our children must not be spoiled by these nongovernmental organizations,” screamed one of the parents at the meeting.

Another parent described the so called organizations as headless saying encouraging sex among young children is immoral and should never be condoned anywhere in Malawi.

“We don’t want them to come with condoms here. This is not acceptable in our society.           We don’t give children weapons of massive distraction,” he said.

Headteacher at Kamalibwe primary Alfred Siko concurred with the concerned parents and assured that he will channel their concerns to relevant authorities for immediate action.

On his part, chairman of the school committee Wongani Nyirenda described the meeting as fruitful because parents expressed their concerns without fear.

But a representative from Hope for Future organization, one of the organizations distributing condoms in Mzimba, said they will not stop distributing condoms in schools because they are mandated by government.

  2. They will have sex sooner or later. Just look at unvanted teen pregnancy, and spread of HIV and other sexual transmitted diseases. Condoms are protection. Let them at least have the ability to choose practising safe sex if and when they start. But teach morals and life skills.

  3. They is this subject of life skillz in primary school, students are learning such things everyday, but it is just a theory, so give them for them to use what they learn practically, u can’t hide such things now since everyone isn’t new when it comes to the isue of sexuality!

  4. come on people…Mukapsa nazo zimenezo..dont give them condoms …The solution is preaching to them…givin them morals…and abstenance….Basi tu…not giving them condoms….condoms?..what for?….ther r definately for sex….so yes distributing condoms fuel Sex activities among the youth…Biliv it or not thats the reality not Fantasy

  13. Instead of distributing food around our nationwide, a lot of people and children are dying of hunger then you are busy teaching pupils sex, I wonder Africa is still going down instead of going up on GDP.

  17. But these youths are sex obsessed generation so what should we do to stop them indulging in such malpractice ?its better they use condoms rather than dying early

  18. If the 11 girls used condoms, they would have not been pregnated. Distribution of condoms is not bad. What you must know is that primary school children practice sex, it’s natural. I had my first girl friend while at primary school.

  19. kumenetikupita sitikudziwako ngati mwana wa primary akutenga pa kati ndiye kuti school yavuta chifukwa msikhu sukulora kuti akhale ku primary komanso mimba zina akupereka ndi sala

  23. The solution is not to distribute contraceptives… the solution is teaching the girls and the girls some good manners….. Even if u have the contraceptives…. the sympathetic nervous system can hijack u…. and u can forget that u have tbe contraceptives…… i admire qatar and UAE…. teenagers or unmarried ppo discovered that they had sex…. they are imprisoned

  34. It’s really nosense. Theyre promoting what theyre trying to prevent. That’s purely satanic mission. Primary leaners are very young for that. They must #STOP

  35. Mwana wa primary m’mene chimakulira chikondomu muja chimukwana? Akungolandira basi nkumakapopa zibaluni koma akafuna kuchita zakwayipa amachita opanda condon.

  36. Its Jxt The Generation Of Sodom And Gomola,if Children Are Getting Pregnancies When Condoms Are Available,do U Thnk They Can Nt Take Pregnancies Are Not Available?

  37. correct & consistent use of condoms can not result into pregnancy. keep on distributing the condoms because primary school learners are practising sexual intercourse.

    • Are u serious? Supposing u have a daughter or a sister…. do u think u would b happy…. seeing some kid next door sleeping around with your daughter or sis….. sex with or without contraceptives z not gud for kids

  38. You’re not serious! Why are yuh urgin learners to do sex before they get matured. Stop distributin condoms to the learners.

  39. akunena zoona makolo .mwana wa primary kumupatsa condom yachani this is poor mind .mwana oti samaziwa zaiye mwini wake ,mukumaganiza kuti condom agwiritsa bwanji ntchito. komanso zimavuta kwa anthu oganiza condom yong’amba ng’amba osaigwiritsa ntchito. kulibwanji anawa .zingosonyeza kuti kumalawi sukulu ilibe ntchito koma chigololo.chifukwa ……………
