"Burn It Down" -House In Which Teenage Girls Are Sold To Nigerians Has Been Identified; Mzansi React



For the past few days, the masses have been watching video clips and listening to audio from Parklands, Cape Town, with heavy hearts, where a young woman tells her mother and a nurse how she and her friends have engaged with Nigerian men in exchange for money, clothes, and iPhones.

In the audio, the girl, only known as Asemahle, can be heard crying helplessly after she was busted by her mother. In fear of what might happen to her, she revealed how she and her friend entertain Nigerian men for R1 500, and that sometimes they did not use protection.

While the rest of the masses were venting out on social media, a Cape Town entrepreneur Luvuyo Jongile decided to take a step further and went to a police station to open a case against the unknown suspects to bring justice to the teenage girls.

According to Luvuyo, the house in which teenage girls are allegedly sold to Nigerians has been identified, including the suspect linked to the crime. It is not yet clear if the suspect has been arrested but police raided the house and were able to successfully identify the suspect.

Public's Opinion

While the masses are relieved that the police have busted the suspect and demand that the house should be burnt to the ground.

Some are accusing police officers and government officials of being aware of the crime but taking bribes from suspects to look the other way.

Author's Opinion

Parents should speak to their children and warn them about the vultures that are lurking at their gate, that they are ready to ambush. There should be no room left to be exploited by hoodlums.

The masses should not be fixated on the identity of the suspect more than on ensuring that the victims are prepared for all eventualities. Even if the suspect is arrested or attacked by the community, young girls can still be perpetuated by neighbours or local mischief-makers.

Girl children must be empowered to repel advances made by older men.
