District Chief Executive for the Bongo District Peter Ayinbisa has blamed the numerous teenage pregnancies in his District on the water they drink.
He says he has information that the water being drunk by the people of Bongo makes the women very fertile and the men sexually active.
Although according to him, his claims can not be proven scientifically, some Nurses have confirmed to him the wonders the water drunk in Bongo does to men and women from the District.
However, Peter Ayimbisa was of the view that it will be irresponsible to say because the water makes the people fertile and sexually active, teenagers need to indulge in the act and get pregnant.
“We are not the only sexually active people in this region- let us restrain ourselves,” adding that “It’s a multifaceted matter and the approaches cannot be one way to solving the problem. The parents have a role to play. The community has a role to play; guidance by teachers for the teenager who are in school, and we as a government- the local assembly has a role to play”.
