We must punish thugs running child brothels

It is with great shock and disappointment that I read the news about the two men who were allegedly running a brothel in Soweto and getting children as young as 10 to sell their bodies.

Some people will do strange things for money and then they will blame the government because "we are unemployed".

How on earth can anyone do such things to innocent children? How does one explain such behaviour? What has happened to ubuntu?

Can any normal man or father do this to children? How would these men feel if their own daughters were forced into prostitution?

People are taking advantage of our country's justice system. Their behaviour tells us that they are no longer afraid of committing crimes because they know that they will get away with it.

It's time that we, the people of this country, stand up against all crime, and help our government.

These innocent children will suffer for the rest of their lives because they have been robbed of their innocence by these two monsters.

I feel the pain of the parents of the children.
