Zimbabwean Government Makes New Push To End Child Marriage

Thomson Reuters Foundation: Zimbabwe ramps up pressure on parents to stop child marriages
“…For although Zimbabwe this year outlawed child marriage, many parents and guardians continue to sanction under-age traditional marriages and withdraw rape charges in exchange for a bride price but this is now putting them in the sights of the law. … A fresh push by Zimbabwean government to tackle child marriage could land guardians … in trouble in the southern African nation where child marriage is rife…” (Phiri, 3/17).
