ZAKA – A form three pupil (name supplied) was on Tuesday discharged from Musiso Hospital where she had been battling for her life after she allegedly tried to commit suicide by drinking poison.
The pupil had reportedly gone through a traumatic experience after it was discovered that she was pregnant allegedly by a trainee priest at the Catholic-run institution.
It is alleged that the affair came to light when the pupil's father discovered that his daughter had a smartphone which the priest had bought for her, and he was able to go through some revealing massages.
Close sources said the priest would often be seen canoodling with the girl at the grinding mill close to the priests' quarters at odd hours of the day.
"The trainee priest bought her a phone and sim card which he registered in his name but the girl revealed everything when she was beaten by her father," said.
After some resolutions to send the girl away and bury the matter, the girl is said to have drank poison as she could not stand the humiliation.
Another source said the trainee father will soon be expelled from the institution.
The matter comes hot on the heels of another case involving a form four female pupil at the same school who allegedly was involved in an affair with a teacher at the same school.
Disciplinary action is yet to be taken against the teacher.local
