Malawi Network Against Trafficking in Persons (MNAT) says it is optimistic that Malawi will register remarkable progress in dealing with cases of human trafficking due to the launch of the 30 days campaign against trafficking in persons.
Government launched the campaign on Monday amid increasing cases of human trafficking especially among children and the youth at the sidelines of the International Day Against Trafficking in Persons commemorations.
Speaking to YFM, National Coordinator for the network Maxwell Matewere said the campaign will among others sensitize the masses on the ills of the vice and civic educate them on the laws and proper reporting channels on the occurrence of the cases.
“It is very unfortunate that most people are not aware of the country’s legal framework, and this is one factor that contributes to the vice,” he said.
“The campaign will reach out to every Malawian with legal messages and reporting channels whenever such acts occur in their areas,” Matewere added.
The campaign commenced on July 30 will run up to August 29 this year.
