Today’s story, headlined ‘’Mzembi denounces child exploitation’’ in which the Minister of Tourism and Hospitality Industry Walter Mzembi has castigated the commercial sexual exploitation of children and called for the establishment of protective mechanisms to safe guard the rights of children, is a good call for the rights of children. There are plenty of people who have used their authority be it religious, monetary or physical – to abuse minors. One would think that headmasters, teachers and all the people that deal with the children must know better than to abuse the very children they are supposed to serve but the situation on the ground suggest otherwise.
