Kisii County MP alarmed over rising cases of teenage pregnancies in Nyanza

Kisii Woman Representative Doris Donya Aburi addresses the press at Bobaracho Primary School after she donated foodstuff and clothes to locals. She decried the high cases of teenage pregnancies in Nyanza.

Kisii County MP Doris Donya Aburi has raised concerns over high cases of teenage pregnancies in Nyanza region, saying it is derailing the education of the girl-child.

Consequently, the Woman Rep has implored parents and guardians to talk to their children to shun immoral activities.

The MP noted that defilement and Gender Based Violence (GBV) were rampant in the region, especially Female Genital Mutilation ( FGM), and challenged residents to come together to reverse the trend.

“The prevalence rate of FGM in Kisii County is at 77 per cent while in Nyamira it is 75 per cent. It has no meaning and only violates the rights of the girl-child,” Aburi said.

The lawmaker spoke at Bobaracho Primary School after she donated foodstuff, clothes and shoes to residents as an Easter gift.

She was accompanied by MCAs Ibrahim Ongubo, Amos Onderi (Bokimonge) Ismael Matundura (Bogiakumu), Bouse Mairura (Masimba) and Ednah Kwamboka (nominated).

Aburi, who also organized a medical camp for residents, challenged leaders to strive to address the plight of the poor to improve their lives.

She lamented that People Living with Disabilities (PLWD) had been neglected and asked leaders to support them lead decent lives.

The legislator pledged to dig boreholes across the county to enable residents to access clean drinking water.
