Scandal of teenage brides

Poverty is pushing teenage girls into early marriages or just living with men, NairobiNews can reveal.


They are giving themselves to older men just for a place to sleep and for food.

The shocking trend is common in many poor neighbourhoods, including Kibera and Mathare.

Alarmingly, the number of girls marrying young is rising, in spite of the fact that such relationships expose them to risks including HIV/Aids.
