Socialist Party Hits back  to HH’s ‘you don’t get pregnant by mistake’ remark

Published

SP deputy secretary general Antonio Mwanza writes:

President Hakainde SAMMY Hichilema has been quoted in some sections of the media saying and I quote, “You don’t get pregnant by MISTAKE, you get pregnant because you want to get pregnant” end of quote.

The statement by the President is not only incorrect but very misleading. It’s not true that everyone who gets pregnant does so by choice, NO. You can be raped and get pregnant; you can get pregnant by having casual sex in the name of having fun. Let’s not mislead young and inexperienced girls with such incorrect assumptions.

Zambia is grappling with a serious challenge of teen pregnancies and early marriages. We have too many teen pregnancies; and the majority of these pregnancies are unplanned and unwanted pregnancies.

Is the president saying that the thousands of our young girls who are getting pregnant are doing so by choice? Some, yes but the majority are not.

Let’s preach correct messages, especially to our young adults. As parents and leaders, we should be in the forefront educating and cautioning our teenage girls about the dangers of casual sex, one of which is ‘unplanned and unwanted pregnancies’; we shouldn’t be misleading them that they can only get pregnant when and if they want, NO.

Six research studies carried out in Zambia (two quantitative, two qualitative, and two mixed methods) have been reviewed. Factors at an individual’s level such as early or child marriage, exposure to media, knowledge about sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and contraception, contraceptive use, as well as risky sexual behaviours were found to be significantly associated with adolescent pregnancy. Peer pressure, educational attainment, household wealth, and the power dynamics of the household head were identified as the major socio-economic factors alongside socio-cultural, gender and sexual norms amongst other environmental and contextual factors. Policy level factors identified were lack and limited access to SRH information and services by adolescents, including an enabling legal environment.

How To Get The ₦50,000 Federal Government Grant

Published

on

The ₦50,000 Federal Government grant is genuine. And it is not a loan. It is a gift. The reason why you think it is not real is because you want the Federal Government to give it to you when you don’t have a business. The grant is only meant for people who have a business, even if it is a nano business. It is not money for you to spend. It is money for you to invest in an already existing business.

You must have a growth plan and proof of your identity and address.

Listen, this is a good initiative. It is something worthy of the support of all Nigerians. Not everything must be about politics. This is good for our economy and for you.

Grant Eligibility Criteria
Own a nano business.
Operate a business with progressive economic potential, and desire to grow the business.
Be willing to engage at least one additional staff member if turnover increases
Be willing to provide proof of residential/business address in the Local Government Area
Provide relevant personal and bank account information, including Bank Verification, (BVN) for verification of identity and National Identification Number (NIN)

Published

on

Former Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello is currently at large and has been declared wanted by the EFCC.

This information has reached Very Dark Man’s ears, and he claims to know the current location of the former Governor.

In a new video that Very Dark Man made, he started by saying that EFCC is claiming to not know where Yahaya Bello is, even though he stole billions of Naira. He also said that they can’t find Yahaya Bello, but they easily track and arrest Yahoo boys that steal meager sums like $50.

Very Dark Man expressed his shock with regards to the fact that it is easy for the EFCC to go hunting for Yahoo boys, yet they are finding it difficult to locate Yahaya Bello, who has stolen a whole country’s money.

He went on to say that the money Yahaya Bello stole was enough to fix Kogi State, which is currently one of the poorest states in Nigeria.
