A 19-year old girl has taken refuge in the Nyamagwa Catholic parish following threats by her mother that she would food poison her.
Catherine, not her real name,is a form three student at a Kisii secondary school, but got impregnated four months ago by a fellow student with whom they hail from the same village.
Her mother has since quarreled her several times but took to phone texts a week ago. The latest text message read,'sikutuma wewe shuree unirntee watoto nimewalea nimejoka uniridisie besa yangu ama uende na iyo msigo.mimin sitaki kukuona kwangu na tumbo.nikifiiria musuri ninawesa ata kukua na sumu.umenisumbua sana lakini uoni wewe.' The girl has since taken refuge at the catholic parish where the priest revealed he has tried talking to the stubborn mother in vain. He has undertaken to take care of Catherine until she gives birth as the church does not support abortion and maybe take her back to school.
