Hashtags dedicated at spreading awareness at human trafficking and their hotspots in various cities in the country, trended for almost all weekend on Twitter.

Lerato Kganyago has taken to her Twitter account to share some advice and tips to women on how to stay safe. She also expressed her deep concerns as South Africa is on, according to her, the “Tier 2 Watch list” for human trafficking. She has also slammed the government for not doing anything to protect children who are trafficked daily.

"South Africa is considered to be on the “Tier 2 Watchlist” for human trafficking. At least A MILLION kids are trafficked each year. Our government is not doing enough...Believe it or not South Africa has officially become a source country for Human Trafficking and it’s getting worse!" she said expressing concern.

Lerato who has always lent her voice to social issues, finds it baffling how many women have gone missing since lockdown and they have sadly not been found as yet.

"Every hour a child or woman goes missing! Some are lucky to escape, most never make it! HUMAN TRAFFICKING IS REAL! Thousands of women went missing during the lockdown, MOST have not been found yet," she wrote

In this day and age, human traffickers have looked for many other ways to kidnap women and children. The one way which has become popular is the use of Uber and Taxify. We have seen tweeps sharing their experience when it comes to Uber and Taxify drivers and often times share the details of the ones to look out for.

The DJ has also made mention of how people should protect themselves when requesting such transport and also what to do when in clubs to avoid getting your drink spiked, as she says bartenders get paid to do such.

"Take care of yourselves, let someone know of your whereabouts. When you request for an Uber/Taxify take a screen shot of the drivers details, the plates included. If seated at the back insure the doors don’t have child lock. Otherwise sit in the front where you are more visible.

"Ladies on a night out!!! ALWAYS leave in a group. Have fun but drink RESPONSIBLY. DO NOT TAKE DRINKS from strangers! FYI,  SOME bar tenders are paid to spike your drinks. If you can, rather buy a sealed drink and open it up yourselves...Buy a bottle of water and THOROUGHLY RINSE the glasses yourselves.... especially in a night club!" she advised.
