Kasese girl gives birth at burial, boyfriend disowns child

A 13-year-old girl who had gone to attend a funeral gave birth in a plantation near the burial ground. The incident happened recently in Kyarumba sub-county, Kasese district.

The baby died a few hours after birth. The girl was rushed to a nearby clinic, with the body, said Tadeo Ssentamu, a resident of Kyarumba. According to Ssentamu, it had been raining, so the coldness could have affected the baby.

When the body was taken to Kyanya in Bugoye sub-county, at the home of a teenager suspected to be the father, he disowned the child. It was later buried at the girl’s home in Kyarumba.
