Eager to know why? Missenyi District Social Development Officer, Beatrice Sanga said there are eight cases of abortion in one of the primary schools within Missenyi District. They test babies for pregnancy every three months. Missenyi District Acting Chief Medical Officer Lucy Eustace says an eight year old girl can become pregnant if the egg is mature and the uterus is ready to receive the baby if she meets a man.

She says hospital reports have confirmed the student (name withheld) is pregnant. "I know it surprises many, but you must realize that it is rare for an eight year old baby to get pregnant even though the baby can get pregnant if the egg is mature and the uterus is ready to receive the baby," says Eustace.
