Mr Ssemanda said that after 20 minutes, she notified the invigilator, who called colleagues and rushed the girl to a nearby medical centre.

The clinic’s nurse, Ms Goreth Mirembe, said that after assisting the girl with her delivery, she was taken back to the school to finish her paper in an isolated area.

According to Mr Ssemanda, the invigilator gave the girl an additional 45 minutes to complete the test.

The girl’s parents blamed their daughter’s pregnancy on last year’s Covid-19 lockout, according to Daily Control.

“She was enticed into conjugal acts by a certain boy during the Covid-19 lockdown because they weren’t going to school,” one of the parents said.
