About 200 youth of Jenda Sector in Nyabihu District were on August 2 sensitised on the emerging cross-border threat of human trafficking as part of the Rwanda National Police (RNP) ongoing awareness to keep the vice in check.

Assistant Inspector of Police (AIP) Ariane Muhorakeye, the District Community Liaison Officer (DCLO) of Nyabihu reminded the youth that although human trafficking is a rare phenominon in Rwanda, it is important that every citizen understands that the “threat is real and has no borders.”

“The world is evolving and people are devising means of survivor even in inhuman ways

including trafficking in human beings and people’s smuggling; you should know that

this crime is real and be careful with the people you deal with,” AIP Muhorakeye said.

“Human trafficking means the acts by which the individual becomes a commodity consisting in recruitment, transfer of a person to another part of the country or to another country by use of deception, threat, force or coercion, position of authority over the person, in most cases for the purpose of harming their lives or unlawfully exploiting by indecent assault, prostitution and other unlawful practices similar to slavery,” she said.

“Don’t be blinded by promises from strangers or even someone known to your; think twice, talk to people, seek guidance from relatives, friends, local leaders and even security organs to be 100 percent sure that you are headed to a right direction,” she added.
