Government does’n have technology to detect or prevent online sexual exploitation

By Benjamin Jumbe

The government does not have technological capacity to detect or prevent online sexual exploitation of children.

Head of the counter human trafficking department and coordinator of the Sexual exploitation of children on line Moses Binoga says they are working on developing capacity to technologically detect these cases.

He now says currently they are depending on members of the public who report such cases, making appeals to members of the public to support these efforts by reporting any kind of sexual exploitation of the children online.

He however says through the working group set up to work on the issue, they have a draft national action plan to tackle the problem which is undergoing further consultation with relevant stakeholders
