Golomoti Active Aids Support Organization has faulted traditional leaders for failing to enforce by-laws in a quest to end rising child marriages in the area of traditional authority Kachindamoto.
The organization’s Programs Officer Aaron Sekani said the development is derailing efforts towards eradicating child marriages.
Sekani said this on the sidelines of a stakeholders meeting the organization organized to find solutions to child marriages in the area.
According to reports, the area registered twenty-one child marriages from March to July this year compared to last year’s sixteen cases.
However, Senior Chief Kachindamoto has blamed newly elevated chiefs for fueling child marriage citing such local leaders are not aware of the bylaws.
She has since summoned the chiefs to map the way forward.
