afifteen year-old (name withheld), from Damara Location in Katutura, who appeared in Metro last year for being sodomized by her biological father (name withheld) has fallen pregnant.
The former pupil of I.A. Steenkamp Primary School in Katutura, who was sodomised as recent as last December by her father, said she has been engaging in sex lately and is now over a month pregnant.
“It’s sounds funny because I’m very young and have a very tiny body, but it’s true I’m pregnant. But for the last two weeks we have been trying to abort it,” she said.
This has however nothing to do with her father who works at a farm named Cattle Bank, in Spitzkoppe, as her encounters with her are only in December when he comes for holiday.
“There is no way it can be my father because he only had anal sex with me last December and he is back at the farm now,” she said.
The teen who was first sodomized when she was only 11 years-of age, says she is not entirely sure if her 19 year-old boyfriend is responsible for her pregnancy.
“I have been drinking very much lately and I have a boyfriend now. I think my boyfriend is responsible for this pregnancy. I really think and hope so,” she said.
Just like being raped by her father, she said she’s scared to tell her mother of her pregnancy.
“My mother will kill me if I told her that I’m pregnant now because she’s struggling to support me, “ she said.
Her boyfriend, Steven Ediseb expressed surprise that she is pregnant and denied responsibility.
“Did she tell you that? I’m going to ask her, she never told me about it and there’s no way she can be pregnant because the last time we slept together I used a condom,” said the 19 year-old Ediseb.
He said the only time he know his girlfriend cheated on him was with another girl from her street.
“I know she was dating another girl on the side, but it didn’t really bother me because it was just girls playing,” said Ediseb.
The teen girl dropped out of school five years ago after her house became too dysfunctional to have an educational career in and she’d not known how to deal with her ordeal rather than turn to alcohol and cigarettes.
Her friend and ex classmate who first brought her story to Metro last year, Faith Kalomo, is now in her first year at year the University of Namibia.
“Little has changed about her, she still drinks and hang out with the same group of girls. I don’t see her often nowadays, but I get to see her from time to time,” said Kalomo.
