TweetThis! Video: Child prostitution! (Kenya)

This is pathetic. Absolutely wrong in either way you look at it. A child can not be subjected to these kinds of torture and suffering. It's one thing to think about it but hearing them lamenting and wondering why this was done to them, it kills your heart especially if you care and you have a human heart. It is really sickening and demonic. I fully condemn it and anybody who thinks this is just ok, you are sick too, can you imagine if this was done to you when you were a child?... horrid! (sorry to all of you who went through this, hopefully justice will be done someday).
Kenya's stunning beaches attract thousands of tourists each year but this tropical paradise hides a harrowing secret. Children as young as 6 are having to risk their lives and sell sex in order to survive.
As night falls, Mombasas clubs fill up with European male tourists ogling teenage girls. The desperate teenagers wear high heels and pay a bribe to get in. The ultimate hope is Mzungu, a white man who will pay 5 times more for sex, than a Kenyan labourer can earn in a day. Three years ago a study by UNICEF reported that approximately 30% of the population of children aged between 12 and 18 were engaged in some form of sex work. Since this report, political violence and economic crisis has left 10 million Kenyans starving, forcing more youngsters into the sex trade. I started when I was 12. I could go into a nightclub and I could count 10 to 20 girls that were prostitutes, tells 14-year-old prostitute Leyla. I ask God, what I have done wrong? I am still a child and I am doing this. Dr. Essam Ahmed works in Mombassas only sexual health clinic and explains there are many loopholes in the judicial system, it's very rare for a perpetrator to be jailed. And although the authorities say they are going to take strict action on those who are taking advantage of young children, the country fears any attack on its reputation could drive innocent tourists away.
