Zion*'s story - The violent truth about teenage pregnancy
Zion, 16, is eight months pregnant. She lives near Ngogwe in Uganda. I finished Primary 7, and then went to stay with my father for Senior 1. I only started term 1 on St Cornelius day. In the holidays, I went to the islands to see my mother. But I found that she is too poor. Someone came, and he started telling me things. I met him in December; he was a shopkeeper, and 18 years old. And I started asking because we were poor, but when they give you, they take. And I agreed. I didn’t know I was pregnant when I came back from the islands.
