VOX POP: Would you recognise a human trafficker?

“I would recognise one because a big percentage of their conversations are about women and how profitable they can be if someone would use them in different businesses.” Simon Rwema, Kabeza resident.

“I would recognise one because a big percentage of their conversations are about women and how profitable they can be if someone would use them in different businesses.”

Simon Rwema, Kabeza resident.

 “There are many types of human trafficking which include employment, sex to mention but a few. Identifying a human trafficker is not easy but if you see many people living in a cramped space, employer holding identity documents of his workers and seeing underage prostitutes then they might have been trafficked”.

Genenieve Mbabazi, Kacyiru resident

“It’s not easy to identify them because they are like other thugs doing illegal activities in the country. So, the only advice I give parents or guardians is that they should warn their children about people they should talk too.”

Patrick Muhire, Entrepreneur

“Its not easy to identify them immediately because it’s an underground business. But if you can invest your time in monitoring someone you have suspected you can know because most of their time they try to befriend children and girls.”

Kennedy Mazimpaka

“It’s not good to move with people we don’t know because they may be in a business of selling people. My advice to all young girls is they should know first the person that is trying to befriend them and why.”

Naiga Zakiya

“The same way you look at someone you have just met and you know that this person works in an office or in a construction site is the same way you can recognise them. You judge people according to how they talk, the people they move with and their peer groups”.

Francis Iraguha, Designer

“It’s hard to know them because they convince the victims by promising them green pastures.”

Innocent Ntare, SMS Media Staff

“Many girls should stop trusting people who come in the name of being a well wisher when they don’t know them because these are the people they start trusting and they end up using them in their illegal business.”
