Two women arrested for helping girl procure abortion

10 September 2014, 17:02 Jane Zack

Busia - Teso South police are holding two women for helping a Secondary School student procure an abortion.

Aremit Location Chief, Livingstone Enaga, revealed on Tuesday that the women were arrested to assist police with investigations.

Quick action by the Chief saved the life of the 16-year-old girl who is a Form Three student at Manjas  Secondary in Tororo Uganda, as he rushed her to Kocholia District Hospital with excessive bleeding.

Enaga said the girl's mother who financed her to procure the abortion from a traditional attendant was one of those nabbed by the police alongside the attendant herself.

He added that the Chief intervened following a tip off from members of public.

The traditional attendant was arrested in her Amairo home while the girl's mother was nabbed at Uplands area in Malaba by the police.

Enaga warned parents who take the law into their own hands by helping their daughters procure an abortion that stiffer punishment will be meted on them.
