Married and dumped

Edina Kashaija (20) (see photo on the right when interviewed by journalists) is a young woman living at Ndama village in Karagwe district. after her prmary seven graduation, whe was betrothed and married to a police officer through a less binding traditional marriage. When she become pregnant and delivered, the husband walked out on her and went for another girl, and yet another girl, and yet another girl. It seem the man is a "serial killer," who hunts for virgin bodies and minds.
Edina, soon after her marriage, was informed that her primary seven examination results indicated that she passed for secondary school education entrance. but she would not join because she was expecting already, and the man would not allow that to happen. Since she was already out of school, the law would not protect her.
