#TeenagePregnancy: Viewers Emotional With Zanele’s Mother Over “Lost” First Child

The last episode of Teenage Pregnancy made many viewers emotional as it brought to the fore a significant problem in South Africa — alcoholism — and one woman’s battle with it. 

But why would anyone drink, given that alcoholism is never okay for the body? People have their reasons. And for Zanele’s mother, it is an old pain that she just cannot wish away. 

Her firstborn, who should now be a teenager, was taken away from her (adopted) years ago. Back then, she was just a young mother and poor too. 

Recalling what happened back then is like taking an arrow hit to the heart. It made her teary, listless, depressed. 

Her story touched the right cords in the hearts of viewers as most of them were sympathetic a d encouraged her on the path to not only recovering her daughter. 

Unlike previous episodes, the last episode of Teenage Pregnancy had the most emotional appeal to viewers, and they shared their thoughts about it. You can check out some of the comments below.
