Tanzania President, Magufuli Ban Teenage Mothers From Going Back To School - Must Read


The President of Tanzania, John Magufuli has imposed a ban, restricting school girls who get impregnated from going back to school. The President made this known while addressing Bagamoyo District residents during his three-day-tour of Coast Region on Thursday 22nd June, 2017.

Mr. Magufuli accused some of the non-governmental organisations (NGOs), which have been urging the Tanzanian government to allow teen mothers back to school, of being used by alien agents. In the president's world:

“There are many things that girls, who are impregnated can do after delivery; they can join VETA (Vocational Education Training Authority centres), they can learn sewing but they can’t go back to school,”

“If we were to allow them back to school, one day we will find all girls who are in Standard One have babies,” said President Magufuli.

Mr. Magufuli's administration has been pressured by some NGOs to allow teen mothers back to school but the President is giving no room to grant such decision. The NGOs advocating for girls’ rights to education, are said to be urging the government to formulate a legal framework that would allow teenage mothers to resume studies after giving birth.
