The Daily News on 21 December published an interview with a teenage girl, a grade four school drop out in Tanga region. Her neighbor, who later paid some monetary fine to the girl's parents and was let free, impregnated the girl. Teenage pregnancy is still a problem in some of the regions in Tanzania, but, to date, there is no definite law that states clearly that a pregnant girl should be allowed to continue with her studies. There have been pleas for the government to tackle the problem in order to give teenage girls a second chance in education. At a workshop organized by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) in the city this year, it was revealed that only 27 per cent of women in the country have access to family planning – a situation alarming as it results in uncontrollable population growth.
