TweetThis! Tanzania: Sex And the Exploitation of Children

Please care for children. Protect, direct and teach them the right ways (whenever the just laws allow). Sometimes a child could be looking at you as if to say, ‘please read the signs in my face, please hear my heart, I am not smiling, I am not with good people, please trust your instincts and ask a question, you could be saving me.”

It doesn’t matter if it’s your child or not, some day s/he will remember and thank you in heart! In this way, we will be contributing to “creating a better society”!

If it hurts on you, well, remember the hurt and pain this child will have to live with and remember for the rest of his/her life!

The alarming Voice piece was written by journalist Trina John-Charles and quoted a children welfare official estimating up to 30,000 girls in Kenya aged 12 to 14 being lured into tourist hotels to be sexually abused. One female told the UN that girls were being forced to perform acts with dogs “mainly by Italian clientele.”

In 2003, the BBC exposed trafficking of girls from Cameroon to Europe sold to work as prostitutes. Molo Songolo a South African organisation said children as young as four were shopped to locals and foreigners for sex.

These western sex tourists exploit three things. The slack rules of African governments who do not want to lose the tourist business since the issue gives a bad name; the less strict, stringent rules of our dear governments; and our general poverty.
