Grade 10 Pupil Defiles, Impregnants 14-Yr-Old Girl

POLICE in Chongwe are investigating a grade 10 pupil for allegedly defiling and impregnating a grade eight pupil aged 14.
Both teenagers are pupils at Chongwe High School.
This comes barely two weeks after Senior Chieftainess Nkomeshya of the Soli people stopped a planned marriage between 18-year-old Richard Kabindama and a 17-year-old grade eight pupil.
Chieftainess Nkomeshya also punished Kabindama, his mother, the girl’s mother, and the teen couple’s siblings for arranging the early marriage.
Chongwe district hospital medical officer in-charge Job Mwanza disclosed in an interview yesterday that according to medical examinations, the girl is three months pregnant.
“We recently received the case of a 14-year-old girl who has been impregnated by her ‘boyfriend’ who is in grade 10 at the same school. She has continued going to school but her mother complained that the pregnancy has negatively affected the girl because her performance at school has gone down.
“We treated her and after counselling her, it was resolved that she will continue going to school. Right now she is attending antenatal at the nearest clinic but she will have to deliver from the hospital because our interest as the hospital is in her health,” Dr Mwanza said.
He said the hospital has done a medical report and handed it over to the police for further investigations.
“We have done our part and the police have taken up the matter for further action,” he said.
Dr Mwanza said it is sad that the hospital has continued receiving defilement and rape cases almost on a daily basis.
“Our emphasis is that people should be reporting these cases immediately they happen because our interest is to protect women from contracting sexually transmitted infections, including HIV, and to avoid unwanted pregnancies. Drugs to treat them are there but they are only effective within 72 hours after the incident,” he said.
Dr Mwanza said there is need to curb the rising number of defilement and rape cases in Chongwe because most girls do not take advantage of Government’s re-entry policy into school after they give birth.
“Many girls fail to go back to school after giving birth because they have problems when it comes to finding someone to look after the baby, so the only solution lies mainly in curbing rape and defilement or reporting these cases the moment they happen so that women and girls can be protected from sexually transmitted infections and unwanted pregnancies,” he said.
And Dr Mwanza said he is hopeful a number of parents in Chongwe have learnt some lessons from the punishment meted out on Kabindama, his mother Sara, his would-be mother-in-law Marriet Njobvu, and other culprits involved in the arrangement of his failed marriage with the 17-year-old girl against her will.
He said the culprits successfully completed their punishment, which saw the men slash overgrown grass of the hospital surroundings while the women were ordered to wash bed linen and clean the hospital wards three hours daily for five consecutive days.
The girl has since gone back to school under sponsorship from Child Fund, a non-governmental organisation that played a critical role in stopping the marriage, which reached an advanced stage with a kitchen party that was disrupted at the girl’s home.

    What the chiefness did is the best example to all will be offenders. I wish all other chiefs could do the same. In eastern province I have seen and screened a lot of less than 16 year old girls legally married. Some go into marriage without any pregnancy. Pleases YRH share such reasoning with your fellow chiefs in the House of Chiefs. Once more big ups your Royal RH

    We knw dat defilement is having carnal knowledge wth a minor under the age of 16 of which this case qualifies. Bt the other unstated issue is the age of the culprit. How old is the boy for this case be factual?

  5. dass   April 9, 2012 at 11:15 am

    Words sound like the blaim is on the guy.that’s unfair.she did not complain until the pregnancy was discovered.obviously there was a mutual agreement.

  6. kanyiki t   April 9, 2012 at 11:28 am

    both of them r young n dint weigh th consequences(boy likely 2 b 16).no significant arrest shud b made.

  7. sando   April 9, 2012 at 11:40 am

    What is happening to our children? Both the girl and the boy must be punished. Let them do some community work such cleaning the hospital or talk to their peers on the dangers of unprotected sex.

    Is it me only or did anyone catch what the writer was relating. I mean, are there two stories in this article? Gosh, I am confused. Is the writer talking about two girls of two different ages …. the 17 and 14 year old? Who edits these articles. I mean the stories are educating but sometimes the articles are incoherent. Its like everything is directly translated from Nyanja or Bemba or some other local language. The editor should go through these articles before they are published!!!

  13. zoro4thepipo   April 9, 2012 at 1:37 pm

    Sando ati ‘talk to their peers on the dangers of unprotected sex’??? I thot u would say talk to their peers on the dangers and consequences of sex before marriage!!!

    1. It is wrong in the sight of God to have sex before marriage, whether protected or unprotected!
    2. How many pipo know how to correctly use a condom: when buying most pipo hide actually, the condom is hidden in the pocket which is close to the body temperature! And some buy the condoms from the streets, guess under what temperature these condoms would have been kept at on the streets!!! Mind you, condoms are to be stored and kept at a temperature not exceeding 25 degrees celcius!!!
    3. Many of us men love it skin-to-skin, eyo baeba ati “LIVE”. And that with your wife only of course!

    Free advice.

    she has a tight pussy and i neva new she cud get pregnant.

  15. Automatic Ditch   April 9, 2012 at 2:49 pm

    No one forced anybody to do it but they agreed and all ENJOYED the fruit unless if the girl complained about being forced.
    let them be punished with a simple punishment.

    People take research. The age at which toddlers are becoming sexually active is alarming. You may find a girl 11, 12 or 13 soliciting for sex. Men just need to zip up. I mean men from 12 to 70 as far as bulema and you ejaculate.

  17. zoro4thepipo   April 9, 2012 at 3:18 pm

    Chikadzi, the 17 year old girl’s story recently happened in the same village and is just being used as a reference, of what young girls are being subjected to. Whereas the 14 year old girl is the latest case in this story who was impregnanted by a Grade 10 pupil, though we r not told the age of the pupil!!!

    Anyway, there are so many of auch cases that are seen at UTH too, of young girls, as young as 15, coming in with pregnances, only that they go unreported!!!


  18. Phiri   April 9, 2012 at 3:21 pm

    Punish both parents for not teaching their children about sex. As for the kids they enjoyed sex without knowing the out come will be bad.

  23. The Pheonix   April 9, 2012 at 4:36 pm

    why didnt she say she was defiled before she found out she was pregnant. these small girls are the ones who are a problem. probably she is the one who even asked for the sex. this small girls need serious discipline.

    Thanks Yyes you are my new best friend! At last someone who appreciates proper English writing. Its appalling at how Tumfweko can get away with such shoddy writing. Can you imagine a foreigner trying to make sense of some of these articles. I am sure there are people who could proof read these articles for free if asked. There are a lot of grammatical errors and the stories are all over the place… Some free advice, you should start your article with a thesis statement and then make your argument from there… For example you will state that “young adolescent girls are promiscuous and selling their bodies for money or food” or “molestation against children ages 0 – 12 is on the rise in Zambia” then you go from there and include your supporting facts. That way, anyone even a 5th grader can understand your story. Some the titles I have seen are sooooo amateurish like the one about “bonking” yuck!

  28. Corrector!!   April 10, 2012 at 1:00 pm

    17/14 is not defilement naimwe… if it were rape it would be an offence. since both kids are under 18 and “baliumfwana”, ni wrong+wrong=correct!!

  29. real buffolos   April 11, 2012 at 11:02 am

    Bravo to both parents of the boy and the girl.The SNR Chief and the police are not helping the would be child of these young has happened, no defilement here. they were lovers and the girl enjoyed it too.

  30. Ken   April 11, 2012 at 1:12 pm

    Nothing has changed. Its the publicity that has improved. All of you above did this much ealier than this couple. Eighteen and Seventeen,very normal especially for the girl. Apart from her schooling.

  31. Ken   April 11, 2012 at 1:18 pm

    The human race must survive at all cost. According to the law govening the survival of the species, this couple is ok. The rate at which everyone is trying to prevent pregnancies, the human race will be endangered very soon. Especially the Black race is at the brink of total disapperance. Too many condoms, too much contracption designed to restrict the black race from growing. They want our resources in the end. This Country Zambia is virtually empty. Who would invest in such a low population? I know you will come up with some cheap learnt economics in your arguments. Ichalo bantu not ifimuti.
