13 year olds in prostitution! Old men prefer them!

CHILD prostitution is rife in Bulawayo with a number of children aged between 13 to 17 dropping out of school due to poverty and peer pressure to join the oldest profession in the world, Sunday News can reveal. According to the United Nations’ Convention on the Rights of the Child, a child is anyone younger than 18.

Child prostitutes who were interviewed said they escaped the clutches of the law by bribing policemen who arrest them for loitering and under age drinking.
