Govt slams Katswe Sisterhood, media for exposing child prostitution

Speaking to The Herald, Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare Minister Prisca Mupfumira criticised Katswe Sisterhood for operating without being registered as a Private Voluntary Organisation. She also criticised the media for airing a programme on radio which exposed the nine-year-old, saying it was against the rights of children.

Said Mupfumira:

We need the privacy of the children to be protected. It was wrong for the media to interview one of the vulnerable children who used a pseudo name as Lady B and expose her to social media platforms, as it is an abuse of her human rights. We have a fully-fledged department of social welfare to look after every child. Culturally, the community also has a responsibility to look after children and report if they identify any social ills taking place.
