Tarime — FELISTA Laurent (15) had not been admitted to hospital in her life, until November 4, this year, when she was attacked by his father, Laurent Nyonyo and hospitalised at Tarime District Regional Hospital, with serious wounds. This was after she refused to get married. Staff Writer MUGINI JACOB visited the young girl at the hospital and now reports...
SHE is young and plans to begin her secondary education next year. Sadly, her future stands in limbo because her father wanted to receive some cows in dowry, forcing her to accept early marriage and thus sacrifice education.
The decision by Felista to reject an offer for early marriage has denied her father nine heads of cattle, but she is now feeling the pinch of not becoming a mother as early as her father wished.
"I have never been admitted to a hospital since I was born, but I am now wounded and hospitalized for refusing to be married", Felista says.
