Stop Human trafficking in South Africa

Over  the last few weeks in South Africa , a two year old was abducted  from her creche, raped and left in the bush, where she was found  crawling around and crying, by an old woman, two hours after her  abduction. 

Another  child in a pre-primary school was molested, and the authorities have  done nothing. We have all heard the story of Sheldean Human who was  abducted and brutally murdered close to her home. 

A  while ago a 3 year old girl was beaten and raped. She is still  alive. The man responsible was released on bail. He is walking the  streets. 


If  you are too busy to read this then just sign your name and forward  this on. The Government is planning to close the child protection  unit and this is a petition against it. This is a very important  petition. It is an essential part of the justice system for  children. 


You  may have already heard that there's a myth in South Africa that  having sex with a virgin will cure AIDS. The younger the virgin, the  more potent the cure. This has led to an epidemic of rapes by  infected males, with the correspondent infection of innocent kids.  Many have died in these cruel rapes!
 
                                                                                      


Recently  in Cape Town , a 9-month-old baby was raped by 6 men. Please think  about that for a moment. 
The child abuse situation is now  reaching catastrophic proportions and if we don't do something, then  who will?


                              

A  young boy was killed for  muti!!!  This  may not continue!!!

 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------South Africa did not have laws that specifically prohibited trafficking in persons, though a variety of other criminal statutes, such as the Prevention of Organized Crime Act, were used to prosecute trafficking crimes.

South Africa
 is a source, transit, and destination country for trafficked men, women, and children. South African girls are trafficked within their country for the purposes of commercial sexual exploitation and domestic servitude, while boys are trafficked internally for use in street vending, food service, and agriculture. Anecdotal evidence suggests that South African children are forced to provide unpaid labor for landowners in return for their family occupying land or accommodation, or maintaining labor tenancy rights. Child sex tourism is prevalent in a number of South Africa’s cities. Women and girls from other African countries are trafficked to South Africa for commercial sexual exploitation, domestic servitude, and other jobs in the service sector; occasionally, these women are trafficked onward to Europe for sexual exploitation. ThaiChinese, and European women are trafficked to South Africa for debt-bonded commercial sexual exploitation. Young men and boys from MozambiqueZimbabwe, and Malawi are trafficked to South Africa for farm work, often laboring for months in South Africa without pay before "employers" have them arrested and deported as illegal immigrants.Organized criminal groups—including Nigerian, Chinese, and Eastern European syndicates, local gangs and individual policemen facilitate trafficking into and within South Africa, particularly for the purpose of commercial sexual exploitation.

The Government of South Africa does not fully comply with the minimum standards for the elimination of trafficking; making no significant efforts to do so. South Africa is placed on Tier 2 Watch List for a fourth consecutive year for its failure to show increasing efforts to address trafficking over the last year. The government provided inadequate data on trafficking crimes investigated or prosecuted or on resulting convictions or sentences. In addition, it did not provide information on its efforts to protect victims of trafficking and continued to deport and/or prosecute suspected foreign victims without providing appropriate protective services.[1]
