The reason for the mass pregnancy according to the girls of the school is because of the fierce competition among the school boys to father a baby.
Apparently, not understanding the responsibilities of childbirth and nurturing a baby, News Agency, Daily Sun, while on a visit to the school met about 10 of the pregnant girls while others were said to be on maternity leave.
According to the People’s Paper, the girls accounted that the boys in the school thought impregnating girls and having a baby made them ‘cool’.
The pupils of the school further added that the competition was fierce as some boys laughed at others who didn’t have children.
According to a young boy who’s already a father to a 4-month-old baby, the competition started getting intense last year.
He said: “If you want to be cool and respected you must have a child,”
One of the pregnant girls revealed that a fellow pupil was the father of her unborn child.
