Police officers based in Kilifi, Mombasa and Kwale counties have been trained on stopping syndicates that have been on the verge of recruiting young innocent girls and forcing them to sleep with men in exchange for money, others even go to an extent of filming the minors as they do the act, then sell the videos to potential buyers.
On Sunday, the international justice mission together with the DCI said that over 100 detectives were put in a class and trained on how to handle cases that surround child trafficking, this is where the perpetrators force them to be in the act with old men for money. In the recent past, the vice has destroyed the future of many children, and if not taken into account, many may end up being victims of the same. Children from the coastal region are the ones mainly affected.
The young girls are lured into the business by being offered free food, clothing, affection, friendship and love, this later makes them trust their sponsors who later traffic them for the business.
