The former Mawokota North MP said that, unlike families which pressure men into marrying girls after impregnating them, it wasn’t the case for her.
Her father wanted her to abort it. However, she didn’t follow this advice and went ahead to give birth.
“I got married soon after A-level. Just like any young person, I was a bit mischievous. Fortunately, I got pregnant, and the man responsible decided to marry me. When a young girl gets pregnant, there is a lot of pressure from the family, but my father preferred that I abort it. I am glad I did not,” she said on NBS TV’s People and Power program.
She also detailed her growth and education.
Apparently, she didn’t grow up in Uganda. And on returning, she was enrolled in a local school. Her family thought she was so much of a ‘Muzungu‘ and therefore wanted to ‘Ugandanize‘ her.
They went ahead to enroll her at Gayaza Girls School where she found everything there to be new. Although this was the case, she eventually grew into it and it’s what made her the resilient woman she is today.
“My parents enrolled me at Gayaza High School, and it changed my life. The change in environment came as a culture shock, everything was new. Waking up at 5:00 am and bathing in cold water was new. Eventually, I got used to it, and it groomed me into the resilient person I am,” she added.
Apparently, the ex-minister also studied at Sacred Heart in Gulu where she spent 4 years. She further revealed that most of her friends come from there.
