Gender inequality, difficulties in accessing services and poverty are fuelling high rates of unintended pregnancies and HIV in Homa Bay, Western Kenya – according to a new report commissioned by Homa Bay County Government and carried out by the Overseas Development Institute and LVCT Health, with support from UNICEF.

The report, ‘Unintended Pregnancies and HIV Amongst Adolescents and Young People: A Situation Analysis of Homa Bay, Kenya’, highlights that one third (33 per cent) of adolescent girls aged 15 to 19 in Homa Bay are mothers or pregnant with their first child, almost twice the national average of 18 per cent. It also shows that youth aged 15-24 contribute 13 per cent of the total number of HIV infections amongst 15-49-year olds in the county. There are similar trends in other Western Kenyan counties.

“We must take urgent steps to make sure children and young people receive the information and support they need to protect themselves from unintended pregnancy and HIV,” said Maniza Zaman, UNICEF Representative to Kenya. “This is particularly relevant during the COVID-19 pandemic, when safety nets like families and schools have been affected.”

Adolescent girls were identified as particularly vulnerable, as they often have little say in relationships and the use of condoms, face pressure from peers or wider society to get pregnant or marry early, or circumstances force them into transactional sex – for example to buy fish to feed their families. Many girls told researchers they lacked access to, or awareness of, relevant HIV, sexual and reproductive health services.

The study found that adolescent girls are at risk of sexual violence increasing their risk of HIV and unintended pregnancy. It was reported that cases of defilement of under-age girls have increased in Homa Bay, particularly around school holidays, with many cases going unreported. Violence and sexual abuse of under-age girls are often not reported due to fears of stigma and prejudice or fear of retaliation from the wider community.

“We need a society-wide shift for men, women, girls and boys to all understand the risks young people face and to challenge harmful gender norms,” said Professor Richard Muga, Head of Health Services in Homa Bay County, who commissioned the report. “The County Government is committed to taking urgent action in response to the report’s findings in order to reduce unintended pregnancies and lower rates of HIV.”

This is a qualitative and in-depth report based on a review of the available literature plus interviews with 112 adolescents, parents, government officials and service providers in Homa Bay Town and Ndhiwa Constituency. It also highlights other key drivers of adolescent HIV and pregnancy, including:

  • poor sex and reproductive health education in schools, which is not equipping adolescents with the skills and knowledge they need to stay safe
  • cultural practices such as disco matanga (disco funerals), a practice of the Luo in Nyanza province, where people sleep under the same roof for several days
  • risky behaviours such as having multiple partners, unprotected sex and taking drugs.

“It is critical we understand the underlying drivers of high teenage pregnancies and HIV, including stigma, social norms around expected behaviours and peer pressure to engage in sexual relations at an early age and to get pregnant,” Dr Fiona Samuels, Senior Research Fellow at ODI and Principal Investigator for the study, said. “Without this understanding programmes and policies will continue to fail adolescents, and especially girls.”

HIV and pregnancy can have huge health, psychological and socio-economic impacts on young people. The leading cause of death among girls aged 15 to 19 worldwide is pregnancy and childbirth complications. Girls who are pregnant or have HIV can end up dropping out of school and experiencing depression or poor health. Adolescent girls who get pregnant are also more at risk of child marriage and can face life threatening complications during childbirth, as their bodies are not yet ready to give birth. They often become economically dependent on their partner and more at risk of violence and abuse. It can be a vicious cycle.

UNICEF, together with the UN family, works with the Government of Kenya at national and county level to ensure adolescents are protected from violence and harmful cultural practices and that they have access to HIV prevention and care services, as well as appropriate sexual reproductive health services. UNICEF is advocating for the Government and partners to urgently implement the report’s key recommendations, which include:

  • Improved and budgeted programming – focusing on addressing harmful gender norms, as well as better dissemination in schools of information on sexual reproductive health, HIV and services to tackle violence
  • Increased financial support and training opportunities – including grants for the most vulnerable girls during school years and tailored training, education and skills development to give girls alternatives to marriage and early pregnancy
  • Improved sexual and reproductive health and HIV services – including training for staff, providing easy access to free family-planning supplies in private spaces, and increasing the availability of counselling.

“We commend the County Government of Homa Bay for commissioning this crucial report that can help address the issue of teen pregnancies,” UNICEF’s Maniza Zaman said. “We look forward to working together to improve services for young people and to equip them with the skills and knowledge they need to stay safe and healthy, giving them the best chance in life.”

One of the three people who were found guilty of conspiracy to commit the Garissa University terror attack has committed suicide.

Tanzanian Rashid Charles Mberesero- an Al-Shabaab operative committed suicide at the Kamiti Maximum Prison where he was serving life imprisonment.

Mberesero’s body was on Friday, November 28 found hanging on the window metal grill of his cell at Block H. He used a piece of blanket to take his own life.

On June 19, 2019, Mberesero together with Mohamed Abdi Abikar and Hassan Aden Hassan were found guilty of conspiracy to commit the terror attack. Their phone records and handwriting linked them to the 2015 dawn terror attack that left 148 people killed.

The three were also found to be members of the Al-Shabaab, an Islamic extremist group based in Somalia. Al-Shabaab- an affiliate of Al-Qaida claimed responsibility for the attack.

On July 3, 2019, Mberesero was sentenced to life in jail while Abikar and Hassan were slapped with 41 years each in jail.

On the fateful day, four gunmen forced their way onto the campus, opening fire on students and staff, some were still in their sleep.

In August 1998, Al-Qaida carried out Kenya’s deadliest attack, when it bombed the U.S. Embassy building in Nairobi. More than 200 people were killed in the attack.

SINGAPORE (Reuters) – A Singaporean woman, who was infected with the novel coronavirus in March when she was pregnant, has given birth to a baby with antibodies against the virus, offering a new clue as to whether the infection can be transferred from mother to child.

The baby was born this month without COVID-19 but with the virus antibodies, the Straits Times newspaper reported on Sunday, citing the mother. bit.ly/33I0liL

“My doctor suspects I have transferred my COVID-19 antibodies to him during my pregnancy,” Celine Ng-Chan told the paper.

Ng-Chan had been mildly ill from the disease and was discharged from hospital after two-and-a-half weeks, the Straits Times said.

Ng-Chan and the National University Hospital (NUH), where she gave birth, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The World Health Organisation says it is not yet known whether a pregnant woman with COVID-19 can pass the virus to her foetus or baby during pregnancy or delivery.

To date, the active virus has not been found in samples of fluid around the baby in the womb or in breast milk.

Doctors in China have reported the detection and decline over time of COVID-19 antibodies in babies born to women with the coronavirus disease, according to an article published in October in the journal Emerging Infectious Diseases.

Transmission of the new coronavirus from mothers to newborns is rare, doctors from New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center reported in October in JAMA Pediatrics.

With Egypt facing a second coronavirus wave, an inventor is trialing a remote-control robot which can test for COVID-19, take the temperature of patients, and warn them if they don’t wear masks at private hospital north of Cairo.

Mahmoud el-Komy, who designed the robot, called Cira-03, says it can help limit exposure to infection and prevent the transmission of the virus.

His creation, which has a human-like face and head and robotic arms, can take blood tests, perform echocardiograms and X-rays, and display the results to patients on a screen attached to its chest.

“It is able to take blood samples, chest echos, and x-rays, all of this can be done remotely, it can be controlled from anywhere in the world. The robot can conduct all these accurate tests while the doctor is in another room or outside of the hospital entirely,” said Mahmoud.

“This invention is very important during the pandemic, it reduces the infection rate to zero, since everything is automated, via the robot Cira,” said Abu Bakr El-Mihi, head of a private hospital where the robot is being tested. Cira-03 tests a patient for coronavirus by cupping their chin and then extending an arm with a swab into their mouth.

Abu Bakr El-Mihi said they were using the robot to take the temperature of anyone suspected of having COVID-19.

The shirt worn by Diego Maradona when he scored his famous “Hand Of God” goal against England at the 1986 World Cup in Mexico could be available for $2 million (Sh220 million) following the Argentine’s death on Wednesday, says an American sports memorabilia expert.

The shirt is owned by former England player Steve Hodge, who got it from Maradona after the match in which his attempted back pass led to the controversial goal that helped dump England out of the tournament which Argentina went on to win in Mexico.

“I was walking down the tunnel and Maradona was coming in the opposite direction. I just tugged my shirt and we swapped there and then,” Hodge, who had been delayed on leaving the pitch doing a TV interview, told British media.

The shirt is currently on display at England’s National Football Museum in Manchester.

“It’s very difficult to gauge (the value) with the “Hand Of God” jersey, but I know that the owner was looking for a $2 million private sale,” David Amerman of Goldin Auction in New Jersey told Reuters. “It certainly could be a possibility, the values have jumped quite a bit in soccer.”

Amerman’s firm is currently involved in another auction together with Sotheby’s called ” A Century Of Champions,” which features a Jules Rimet trophy which was presented to Pele by FIFA after he won his third World Cup with Brazil in 1970.

The trophy is expected to sell for up to $800,000 and that sum could be dwarfed if Hodge finds a buyer for the Maradona shirt or if he puts it up for auction, although the 58-year-old former midfielder may not quite reach his target price.

TWO MILLION

“It’s very difficult to see how it would get to the two million dollar price, but I don’t see why an individual who had the money wouldn’t want something like that – you can’t really put a number on it. If you find the right person in the right place, it’s a realistic possibility,” Amerman explained.

“Maradona’s rookie soccer card, we recently sold a copy for $10,000. This is a card that was worth maybe a few hundred dollars just a few years ago, and that was before his death. I saw one yesterday online that they were asking $20,000 for.”

But Amerman sounded a note of caution for those thinking of getting involved in the Maradona memorabilia market following the Argentine’s death aged 60 after a heart attack.

“Right now we’re definitely seeing increased action – I’ve already got inquiries from people who have purchased Maradona items on our site looking to sell them back in our next auction.

“We saw with the passing of Kobe Bryant this year… an immediate huge spike in his memorabilia… then it levels out because the market gets saturated…”

One man who won’t be putting the shirt Maradona gave him on the open market is ex-Arsenal and Juventus player Liam Brady.

The former Ireland midfielder played against Maradona many times for club and country and the Argentine gave him an unusual number 17 shirt rather than his usual number 10 after a game in 1979.

“If it went to a private collector that really wanted it, if it was going to the right place and it was going to be appreciated, I would consider selling it, but I wouldn’t put it on eBay or any of these auction rooms,” he told Reuters.

“It has a huge amount of sentimental value.”

18 teenagers were on Friday, November 27 night arrested while having a house party in Kahawa Sukari estate in Ruiru, Kiambu County.

According to police, the 18 teenagers-16 of whom were below 18 years were found drinking alcohol while celebrating a birthday.

Ruiru Deputy County Commissioner Geoffrey Githinji rued the gathering that was against COVID-19 containment protocols.

Githinji warned those who sold alcohol to the children, promising that they will be arrested and prosecuted.

The children will be released later today, with Githinji calling upon parents to be more vigilante about their children’s whereabouts, especially now that they are idle because of closure of schools.

Cases of moral decay among children have been on the rise lately.

Last Saturday, 44 minors- including 26 boys and 18 girls were arrested by DCI detectives at Mountain View Estate. DCI sleuths recovered various alcohol brands, bhang, and used condoms from the house.

Their host, 41-year-old Millicent Kithinji has since been arraigned and detained for seven days awaiting mentioning of his case.
