36 school girls married off in Karonga North

Chief Kilipula of Karonga has vowed to sack village heads following revelations that 36 girls from three secondary schools quit school for marriage last year. Kilipula said it was painful and unacceptable that despite efforts to keep girls in school, some parents push them to marry as village heads look on. The dropouts include 16 girls from Ngerenge Community Day Secondary School (CDSS), 18 from Providence Private School and two from Kaporo CDSS. Karonga Police officer in charge Sekani Tembo urged communities to report these criminal marriages
