LC5 VC blames teenage pregnancies on parents sharing bedrooms with their daughters

By Patrick Ebong.

The LC5 vice chairman for Lira district has blamed the high number of teenage pregnancies on the practice of parents sharing bedrooms with their daughters.

George Okello Ayo says some parents in Lango Sub-region who share single grass-thatched huts with their daughters engage in sexual activity when the children are still awake.

Speaking at a meeting on Health System Advocacy Partnership organised by Global Forum for Development in Lira town, Okello said many times the men are drunk and are often oblivious to the fact that the children are awake.
