Children speak their mind on child marriage

If children in Malawi were to make and pass laws regarding their protection and wellbeing, top of the list would be very strict and absolute laws against child marriage. Every person that contravened the laws would be dealt with ‘stiff penalties’ including going to prison for ‘a very long time’. In effect, no child marriages would exist in Malawi. This is what children in Mwanza and Neno district revealed when they conducted a children’s parliament session hosted by Save the Children.
