allAfrica: African news and information for a global audience
|Scooped by Mikayla Green|
This article is about a new law, named the Bill which is now laws and regulations over the topic of human trafficking. In this article, it's telling us how Zimbabwe is improving their situation on human trafficking. Human trafficking in Zimbabwe is very common. Hundreds of woman and children are being trafficked in Zimbabwe every year. In this article, it is explaining how Zimbabwe is improving their situation with Human Trafficking by the new regulation of the Bill. In the Bill it has all the rules, definitions, punishments, and payment for the crime. The Bill is also considered a bill, because every trial and discussion is completely free. The Zimbabwean social services works with the government and have come up with an agreement that human trafficking is not something to take time on and the actions and punishments for it need to be done immediately. In the Bill, it tells us that "Human Trafficking under no regulation is a crime, if it is proven, the law will have no case at all and the punishment will be immediate". This helps me understand Africa well in two ways. It helps me understand the situation of human trafficking and why its done. What I've learnt from this article is human trafficking is common in Zimbabwe because people aren't able to get "real jobs" reason may be because of lack of education. Another thing that I've learnt from this article is how Zimbabwe is improving the problem of human trafficking in Zimbabwe. I feel very happy that the government has finally done something to help with Human trafficking, and the Bill is finally and official law. I want to know how other people are able to help with the Bill, as it's under government payments. I also want to know how many years the idea of the Bill has been under planned, and why they haven't started it earlier. Overall I'm happy that Zimbabwe is improving their situations and I hope that other countries follow Zimbabwe's idea to improve their situations with human trafficking.
