Twenty minors trafficked for child labour in neighbouring South Africa have been rescued by the Gaza province government.
Elícia Putile, the public prosecutor and coordinator of Gaza’s provincial child protection and anti-trafficking reference group, said that the minors were lured with promises of employment and better living conditions in neighbouring South Africa.
However, they were in the eventuality required to do heavy work like wood chopping and woodworking, without proper pay or rest.
“Work has been carried out between Mozambique and South Africa, with the help of relatives of these minors, who played their part very well,” she said.
An individual known to the minors is currently being detained on charges of trafficking in persons.Source: Rádio Moçambique
