“According to United Nations report, Yumbe recorded close to 5,000 cases of teenage pregnancy in a space of 12 months during Covid-19 period which is a bad statistic but we are trying to see how we can reverse it through sensitization programs”. He stated.

He revealed that the area has a great challenge of rudimentary beliefs like thinking that marrying a young child is a privilege citing large number of teenage mothers in the area.

Hudu expressed dissatisfaction with the laziness of Yumbe residents who have failed to utilize their gifted land and have resorted to unbecoming behaviors hence stagnant development, high crime rates and alarming levels of malnutrition in the area.

“How can you surely wait for food donation from donors and other areas yet you have such vast land, you need to wake up now team up, ensure you produce food for your consumption, sale and some for security than becoming beggars”. He ranted.

“As long as I am still your RDC, I will not tolerate nonsense. I find you meandering, unbecoming acts, you will answer accordingly. Such weird behaviors that you could have adopted from refugees of Congo and South Sudan majorly should stop and focus forward”. He added.
