Facebook Accused Of Aiding Child Trafficking

South Africa’s minister of police, Bheki Cele revealed that children in the country are being sold online through social media platforms, especially Facebook.

Cele revealed that in November last year, the police were told of incidents of parents advertising children on various social media platforms.

She said that, even though the police were aware, the country’s crime intelligence did not have resources to address the case but is in the process of acquiring social media monitoring solutions.

However, Social Development seems to be trying to deal with the issue. According to Minister Lindiwe Sisulu, some of the measures employed to address child trafficking on social media include monitoring such platforms and training stakeholders to control the case.

In accordance with the 2022 US Department of State human trafficking report, 83 trafficking victims have been identified by the South African Government within the period of April 1, 2021, to March 31, 2022.

The report also places South Africa in the second worst tier of countries failing to have sufficient strategies to handle human trafficking.
