Update: 9-year-old Pregnant Girl “Doesn’t Know She’s Pregnant”, Father Arrested
The father (29) of the 9-year-old pregnant girl was arrested on 29 August 2022 when it was discovered that the minor was pregnant and is assisting police with investigations.

He allegedly told his daughter that “goblins will visit her at night and insert something in her private parts.”

The goblins that the father forewarned his daughter about, are alleged to have visited the nine-year-old only on nights that her mother was away from home and was left in the care of her father.

The mother told The Sunday News that what pains her most was that her daughter was not aware that she is pregnant, but believes she is suffering from some stomach ailment.

In an exclusive interview with Sunday News in Bulawayo on Friday, the girl’s mother (26) revealed that her daughter started her monthly menstrual cycle when she was just seven years old in 2020. She said:

She does not know what is wrong with her, that she is pregnant. The last time I saw her she asked me if I would take her home once she heals from her sickness, as that is what she knows. I started to see her menstruating in 2020 she was seven years old then and I took her to the clinic to find out what the cause could have been. They told me that it was possible for her to menstruate early owing to the foods children eat nowadays. We returned home, and then this year (August), I noticed that her stomach was swelling and took her to the hospital once more and there it was discovered that she was pregnant. I was not expecting that she could be pregnant because it is actually a shock and something foreign to us that a nine-year-old child can fall pregnant.

The mother said her daughter has not yet spoken about what happened to her.

The girl was attending school from the beginning of this year but sometimes would not get to school and would return home and say she was chased away from school, the mother added.

The girl who is 33 months pregnant is at United Bulawayo Hospitals where she is being monitored
