A young KwaZulu-Natal university student has found herself in a very difficult situation after falling pregnant while still studying. According to the woman who called in to a local radio station, she does not know how to break the news to her very religious and very strict parents.
"A 22-year-old KZN student has shared her pregnancy ordeal with a local radio station. In her communication with the station, she shared that she is afraid to tell her conservative family that she has fallen pregnant while at university.
"She also shared that she grew up in a very religious family that believes that a woman should only be with a child after she has married. What would be your advice to her?
Locals had this to say:
Oratile Mabena said:
"My advice...? She should be brave and tell them. Although they will be angry at her, I think it will be worth it u know. The truth will always come out rather the know the truth than to let the reveal itself"
Vicky Oratilwe Makofane said:
"I strongly suggest she should tell her family and apologize to them... And go back to school because the child is going to need good care from parents... The child should not stop her from succeeding... Parents respect children who take responsibility and face the consequences... Just chill my sister nobody is perfect"
