Eswatini (Swaziland): Challenging laws allowing child marriage

Salc : Tambudzai Gonese

In February 2017,SALC supported WLSA in Eswatini to  file a case challenging laws that allow child marriage. The challenge is to sections of the Marriage Act and customary law that allow a girl who is under 18 years to contract a valid marriage. The case is currently on hold to allow for the law reform process that is underway.
