Muhanga motorcyclists pinned over defilement
Jean Damascene Sindizera, a teacher at Nyabisindu Primary School in Nyamabuye sector in Muhanga district, says that some motorcyclists are employed permanently to take children to school and back home, which gives them much time to interact.
They lie to the young girls telling them what they are doing is good and girls won’t report if they are defiled since their minds were made to believe it’s a good thing, teachers lament.
Some of the parents find out about their daughters defilement when it has gone on for a long time.
It’s because of this that teachers are urging parents to take good care of their daughters by talking to them and making follow ups on how they reach to school and back.
Wencesilas Nzasamahoro, Head of Byimana Primary School in Ruhango district asserts that parents should make their children busy after school or help them with revision to avoid idleness.
Reproduction health worker, Bikorimana Ndungutse denotes that YWCA-Rwanda in partnership with parents and teachers embarked on fighting the problem of young girls being defiled.
Bikolimana adds that teachers and head teachers will make the process quick since after training some are going to set up clubs to fight unwanted early pregnancies in primary schools.
