Teen bleeds to death after abortion

an Outapi teenage girl died after attempting to abort a three-month old pregnancy on Monday last week.
Martha Nghiwilepo (17), according to her mother, Pandu Nghiwilepo, bled to death in her bedroom.
Pandu said her daughter was assisted to carry out the abortion by a cousin known only as Naambo.
“We found out that the two girls had been planning to have the abortion for weeks now. They were asking around for information but we are not sure where exactly they got the medicine that was inserted into my daughter’s vagina,” said Pandu.  
In the absence of Naambo who is on the run but is believed to be somewhere near Oshikango, the family is unable to determine where the girls got the medicine from.
“It’s difficult now because her phone has been off for days and no one knows where she is. She only told someone before she left that she was going to some village near Oshikango,” Pandu said.
She said her husband was the one who discovered their teenage daughter dead in her room.
“He knew that something was strange when he knocked on her door. The key was in the door but the room was locked. He was forced to break the door down and found her dead on the bed,” she said.
Pandu said Naambo disappeared the same day when she learnt that Martha had died and had not been seen ever since.
The matter has been reported to the police at Outapi who are at the moment tracking down Naambo.
“Naambo knows she must have done something wrong that is why she went into hiding. We don’t want to release more information about her or why we are looking for her as this might scare her way,” said Constable Johannes Angula.
