Our duty to fight human trafficking

This year was the bicentennial anniversary of the abolition of slavery. It is sad that 200 years after slavery was made illegal, it still exists, but under a different name - human trafficking.

Girls and women who enter South Africa as a result of human trafficking are simply declared illegal aliens and sent back home. I know we have problems of our own, but we can't ignore exploitation of any kind. We have progressive laws to help prevent trafficking. It is now time to enforce them.
