Residents urged to help with fight against child prostitution

22 April 2014, 14:02 Oduor Omondi

Migori - Migori County residents have been urged to assist the government with the fight against child prostitution which is at its highest peak in the county.

Migori County Children Services coordinator, John Odinya said that although the country had enacted a law outlawing child prostitution, the vice was still rife in many parts of the country.

He accused hoteliers of abetting child prostitution by failing to implement a code of conduct signed with them to ensure that no under-age girls entered their premises to promote the vice.

“It is not just a question of punishing offenders. Many of the culprits are Kenyan adults who allow this problem to flourish and am asking them to assist us to end it altogether,” he said.

Odinya said besides enforcing the sexual Offenders Act, the government was keen on strengthening parts of the Children’s Act to ensure offenders face more punitive penalties.

The Children’s Act, he said, not only sought to protect children from sexual malpractice but also to ensure nobody exposes the teenagers’ to activities deemed to be infringing on their rights.

Consequently, Odinya warned of punitive penalties to those perpetrating child labour, denying their children rights to access education and engaging in child trafficking among other vices affecting children.

He explained that the government was doing everything possible to block children from working in gold mines in Nyatike and Kamagambo areas of Rongo Sub-County and in parts of Kuria region.

“We are keen to ensure that 40 percent children engaged in gold mines, tobacco firms, fishing, and performing domestic activities as house helps and cattle herders are forced back to class,” he said.
