BUKEDEA: The office of the district health officer in Bukedea district has disclosed that a total of 1,070 teenage girls deliver in the district.

This report was revealed by the acting district health officer Stephen Ikodet during an exclusive interview with www.ugreports.com Monday evening.

According to the report, Bukedea health center IV is ranked to be one of the facilities with about 271 teenage deliveries, Kachumbala H/C III with 208, Kidongole H/C IIII with 152 and Kolir H/C III with 125 among others and this puts the district at the teenage deliveries percentage rate of 19%.

Johnathan Ebwalu, the Soroti West Member of Parliament, earlier pronounced that the majority of the young girls get pregnant by the top district officials who have got access to money.

He says the young girls and most of their parents have failed to offer them with social services for stance pads, therefore hence move to the streets to seek for the living hence get pregnant.

“I want to challenge the district leadership of Bukedea that it’s us the big people who pregnant these young girls, when visiting any guest house it’s the rich people who are sleeping inside with the young girls,” Ebwalu said.

Ebwalu also added that the poor can afford to pay for guest houses in order to sleep with the teenage girls.

‘’It’s the rich people responsible for impregnating young girls,’’ the politician insisted.

However, this was also attributed to the country’s lockdown which tied the majority of girls at home with their parents.
