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.

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.

Sterilize your syringes,

And your inoculation equipment,

Examine blood before transfusion,

It`s time to be serious……..
