Locals in Mombasa urged to fight child sexual abuse

26 June 2016, 14:40

Locals in Mombasa have been challenged to work together so that they can end the increasing child abuse in the County.

A Human Rights lobby based at the Coast has raised concerns that the community especially in Mombasa and Kwale Counties have stayed mum over the matter despite the issue becoming a serious social setback.

Speaking at Likoni within Mombasa on Saturday, the law and human rights officer from Haki Africa human rights lobby Francis Auma said that unfortunate incidents of young children being involved in commercial sex activities and other types ofchildren rights violations must be fought to ensure children tights at the Coast are protected.

"We human rights activists, the security agents, the children departments and the community itself should unite to fight this community vice"said Auma.

The Human Rights activist criticised the Police officers for not taking seriously reports of child abuse within Mombasa County and urged the Police to ensure all those involved in denying children their rights are dealt with.

"What is the work of Police officers if their mandate is not to protect the rights of these innocent souls? "posed Auma Auma has also scoffed at parents who have failed to take seriously their parental responsibility , saying that such parents have also contributed to such social vice in the community.

Auma 's concerns comes after Likoni Sub-County Reported an increase in Child sexual abuse while a recent research conducted by a research Company 'StrategicAfrica'revealed that Kwale County at the Coast is leading in Child commercial sex especially in Ukunda and Diani areas.

However Kwale County government has pointed holesat the report saying that it was exaggerated.
