Minor survives botched abortion attempt

  • 16-year-old impregnated by headteacher

A 16-year-old juvenile is currently admitted at a Kitui hospital, South-Eastern of Kenya following a botched abortion attempt over the weekend.

The class eight pupil who is lucky to be alive delivered a 5-month lifeless male foetus, after being rushed to Mumoni health centre in Kitui county.

According to the victim’s mother, her daughter had complained of severe abdominal pains, prompting her to rush the minor to the hospital.

After interrogation, the girl revealed that her school headteacher who was responsible for the pregnancy had taken her to a private clinic in Ishiara, last Saturday, February 19, where she was given some tablets and asked to swallow.

“What followed were severe abdominal pains that led to her hospitalization,” said the police.

Detectives have since launched a manhunt for the headteacher who has gone missing and the owner of the private clinic who conducted the botched abortion.
