Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
A passionate Ghanaian mother has spoken her views on the ban on social gatherings, particularly for schools to be lifted very soon or too many school girls will get pregnant.
According to the woman who appears to have had some sort of proof regarding her statements, many school-going children have already been impregnated at Kasoa.
The woman made the compelling views known during a special edition of YENkasa where YEN.com.gh goes out and about, gathering public opinions on trending and controversial topics.
See video below:
Since the partial lockdown that was imposed on parts of Ghana to curb the spread of COVID-19 was lifted on April 20, 2020, there have been talks for the government to lift the ban on public gatherings as well.
Several people who have watched the video have been reacting massively to the woman's assertions.
According to Arbenah Konaduh, it is true that many girls have been prone to pregnancy but that is not reason enough for the ban to be lifted:
May De Powers opines that the girls would only get pregnant because of their own lack of good training and character, so it has nothing to do with the ban on social gathering.
Benjamin Kwabena Nana Takyi indicates that the woman's opinion cannot be true because there were days in the past when children never went to school but were still keeping themselves from pregnancy.
Meanwhile, another report by YEN.com.gh has it that Doris Obenewaa Darko, a Ghanaian food vendor, holds two degrees in Mathematics & Actuarial Science after painfully fending for herself since she finished high school.
Narrating her story in an interview, Doris indicates that she holds a bachelor's degree in Mathematics after which she went ahead to study for an MSc in Actuarial Science, both at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.
Doris grew up in Koforidua-Kukurantumi and had her primary education in Rose's School Complex after which she attended Akim Commercial College JHS, all of which are in New Tafo Akim.
