allAfrica.com: Zimbabwe: Human Trafficking Bill Gazetted (Page 1 of 2)

allAfrica.com: Zimbabwe: Human Trafficking Bill Gazetted (Page 1 of 2) | Current Events | Scoop.it
allAfrica: African news and information for a global audience
Mikayla Green's insight:

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.

South African education lacks quality | Southern Africa

South African education lacks quality | Southern Africa | Current Events | Scoop.it
South Africa is yet to see a return for its massive investment in education as the system still lacks quality, a leading economist has said.
Mikayla Green's insight:

In this article its explaining the lack of education children in South Africa are receiving. This is major problem spread across all of Africa, but is now a major concern in South Africa these days. This is a major concern because children aren't getting the proper education that they have the right to receive. Instead of kids going to school daily, like we do, they are forced to help work with their families because of the lack of wealth they have. Another reason for children not being able to go to school is because of the danger it is just to walk to school. In many villages, there will be one small school, usually crowded with those fortunate enough to be able to attend, but those who live farther away from the school, suffer from danger. The reason for this being, children who walk to school alone, as their families have to stay home and do the work they need to do, they walk to school unattended. This is a major concern because over the past 10 years, over a thousand kids, just in South Africa have gone missing and were seen, right before leaving to school and never actually getting to school. There are many ways for people to help solve this crisis, and UNICEF is one of the major supporters in this scenario.
