I once had a sweet little doll, dears,

The prettiest doll in the world,

Her cheeks were so red and so white, dears, 

And her hair was so charmingly curled.

But I lost my poor doll, dears,

As I played in the heart one day,

And I cried for her more than a week, clears,

But I never found where she lay,

I found my poor little doll, dears

As I played in the hearth one day,

Folks say he is terribly changed, dears,

For her paint is washed away.

And her arms trodden off by the cows, dears,

And her hair not the least bit curled,

Yes for old sakes' sake she is still dears,

The prettiest doll in the world.

INSTRUCTIONS

1.This paper consists of sections A,B and C with 10 questions.

2.Answer all questions in all sections.

SECTION A:(20 MARKS)

1.Read the passage carefully and answer the questions that follow.

In many African societies girls are forced to get married at a very early age, some when they are only eleven years old! Some parents forced their daughters into marriages so as to get dowries. Another reason is the fear that their daughters would be pregnant before they are regally married. It is considered shameful to the parents for the girl to be pregnant out of wedlock.

Early marriages put girls at high risk .At their early age , girls are physically not matured enough to become mothers. Early marriage also results into early and frequent child births leading to large families. Forced early marriage also deny girls the right to enjoy their child hood play, the right to education and the right to choose husband they love and of their own age group.

When girls are forced to marry men who are older than themselves and out of their choices, they are likely to become windows at an early age. After their husbands have died, the young widows are left to take care of their children themselves or remarry.

African customs and traditions do not allow a young wife to inherit her husband`s property. Most of the customs deny women the right to own property. Girls who come from poor families engage in dangerous early sexual affairs resulting into unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases including HIV/AIDS.

Under this red soil,

Poor Kazinde.

Like a hungry lion,

Swallowing the young and old,

The rich and the poor,

Down they have descended, deep into the earth.


Come brother and sisters,

Let the hungry lion die of hunger,

Stop committing adultery,

Consulting unauthorized practitioners,

Sharing razor blades and tooth brushes,

The nation needs you.


And you, doctors,

Sterilize your syringes,

And your inoculation equipment,

Examine blood before transfusion,

It`s time to be serious……..
