Residents of a Corporate Area community say they are imploring adult males to desist from having sexual intercourse with underage girls.
According to THE STAR, an 11-year-old girl is currently four months pregnant, allegedly for a man within the community.
The Centre For Investigation Of Sexual Offences & Child Abuse (CISOCA) had swiftly taken away the mother and the child when our news team arrived in the area.
The matter was the hot topic among residents of the inner city avenue.
Another woman, however, said that she is not surprised by the incident, claiming that a lot of teenage girls are being 'groomed' by men who are sometimes three times their age.
Head of CISOCA, Superintendent Charmaine Shand, confirmed the incident. She noted that police from her department are carrying out investigations.
Meanwhile, it is alleged that the child has pointed fingered a teenager in the community as the father of her unborn child. But according to some of the residents, at least three other males could be responsible for the pregnancy.
Reflecting on the situation, a relative said that he is disheartened by what happened. He has also blamed the child's mother, labelling her as irresponsible.
His reaction was met with some criticism, as a some persons described the mother as a hardworking woman who tried her best to protect her three children.
Another resident, however, added that some of the mothers in the community are to be blamed for high numbers of statutory rape within the area.
