SOUTH Coast Hospice held a human trafficking awareness campaign last Friday at the Port Shepstone Baptist Church. At the event hospice stuff gave a short talk and skit about
human trafficking.

In his speech, guest speaker
Thami Ntimbane said there has been an increase in missing persons and they are either found murdered or forced into sex slavery. Ntimbane, from the Umgeni Community Empowerment, an organisation against human trafficking said the primary victims of this form of crime are female and children, who are promised jobs.

Human trafficking is defined as the recruiting, transporting, selling or harbouring of people by force, deceit or abuse for exploitation.

“Even males now are also a target as they [traffickers] want human organs,” said Ntimbane.

He cautioned that if anyone has suspicion of human trafficking they should not hesitate to inform the SAPS.
