Finally, someone in a position of power is doing something about this disgusting child-bride issue that has been plaguing our communities. Dedza Senior Chief Inkosi Kachindamoto has terminated 330 marriages involving underage children. She went a step further to enroll the kids in various primary and secondary schools.
“I have terminated 330 marriages yes of which 175, were girl -wives and 155 were boy-fathers. I wanted them to go back to school and that has worked,” said the chief.
Wow. That’s a lot.
“I don’t want youthful marriages, they must go to school, we have now set our own by laws to govern everybody within my area when it comes to marriages and will leave no sacred cow, ” she emphased.
Thank you, Ms Kachindamoto.
