The Minister of Home Affairs Mr. Motlalentoa Letsosa has warned Thabana- Morena villagers in Mafeteng about human trafficking which he said affects mostly women, young girls and boys.
Letsosa said this during a public gathering where his ministry was issuing identity documents. He said in most cases, victims are involved in unpaid forced labour and sexual slavery and are usually killed afterwards. He aalso said it is in rear cases where victims escape alive.
A Member of Parliament for Thabana-Morena Mr. Selibe Mochoboroane thanked his counterpart for bringing services closer to the community.
He explained that the initiative is important as it helps vulnerable groups of people who are unable to access these services.
Mochoboroane indicated that the ministry is serving the community with loyalty and respect, urging them to continue with the good work of teaching them about safety measures in regards to human trafficking issues.
