Malawi Chief Theresa Kachindamoto Annuls 850 Child Marriages

Oct 18, 2016 - Malawi chief Theresa Kachindamoto has her priorities straight. In the past 13 years, she's used her position of authority over 900,000 people to .

Chief Theresa Kachindamoto was born into a chiefly clan and the youngest of 12 children. Yet she was selected to be the chief of 900,000 people.

Her first move was to nullify all marriages of young girls under 18 years so that they could go back to school. Her decree has been ratified by the Government. She wants the age to be raised to 21.

It is now illegal for men to marry girls under 18 years, The chief believes that great achievements can be made if girls get an education. 

At present, men are stealing their childhood and wasting their education opportunities. 

Young girls have so much to offer the development of community and nation. This applies to all developing nations including Papua New Guinea.

The chief acknowledges support of Malawi UN Women. Let us hope that there will now not be pressure for girls to marry lesbians. This is a problem in South Africa that has divided the nation.
