Lainya County Holy Cross Primary pupils in Central Equatoria appealed to the state government to put local orders to guard against school dropout among pupils in various schools.

17-year old primary eight candidate Agnes Seluwa decried inequality prevalence in labour at home between boys and girls as affecting their performance in school, Radio Easter reported.

The pupil accused some parents of favouring boys in giving scholastic needs, forcing them to marriage and using abusive language.

Ms Seluwa also accused some teachers of forcing pupils to sexual relationship.

The pupil called on local authorities to take action against parents forcing children to early marriage.

The pupil made the appeal during the International Day to Eliminate Violence against Women celebration organized by Plan International South Sudan Program in schools.
