On teenage pregnancy in Uganda - 49% of girls under 18 are lured into marriage
Members of parliament want the consent age in
Uganda to be increased to 21 yrs from 18 years. The MPs say that
teenagers over indulge in sexual activities and yet for some of the
girls their bodies are not yet fully developed to have a baby!
TRAC FM worked with 3 radio stations (Radio Wa, Delta FM and Radio Pacis) and asked the listeners "DO YOU THINK THAT INCREASING CONSENT AGE FROM 18 to 21 YEARS WILL REDUCE CASES OF TEENAGE PREGNANCY IN UGANDA?"
