Zimbabwe has reported a steep increase in pregnancies among girls and teenagers amid the coronavirus pandemic. Zimbabwe has two sets of marriage laws, the Marriage Act and Customary Marriages Act. Neither law gives a minimum age for marriage consent, while the customary law allows polygamy.

  1. WTF, we need to send free birth control IMPLANTS ASAP. This is why poor people remain poor(lack of education, lack of career advancement). Parents and children need to education and those who preyed on kids need to be CASTRATED.

  2. During lockdown aren’t couples supposed to stay away from each other… How are teen girls getting pregnant🥺

  3. This is common across whole of africa ! Culturally the continent is still the dark continent when a girl gets her periods she is ready for marriage & intetcourse. Cant blame pandemic lockdown bec. Adult supervision & sex education & knowledge have been prevented by mugabe’s regime. In africa we see albino’s are murdered for body parts to do black magic also young kids are abducted & genitals removed.such is the mentality of the tribals ! U mention it to them they will pull the race card out.

  4. What’s the point of sending birthcontrols if they are not educated about responsibilty and consequences they gonna have and how the heck they are having such a intimate contact during lockdown

  5. Well domestic abuse has been up during the pandemic too that is just part of it they like victims isolated at home just another excuse to make sex slaves of them.

  6. I like Zimbabweans government by empowering young mothers with skills for living unlike in South Africa where they’re promoting grant rather than skills

  7. Wion, please correct your thumbnail. Its deceiving. Your thumbnail gives the perception the person is married, ring on left hand. And its blacks that are falling pregnant and not the fair skinned as in whites. There’s little to no whites in Zimbabwe
