Some anti-human trafficking organizations recently said many of the so-called gentlemen's clubs around the country are not as above board as they claim to be. Various civil society organizations demonstrated at parliament earlier. They are calling for the finalization and implementation of the trafficking in persons bill which has been deliberated in parliament for several years. A young female protester told Eyewitness News strip club bosses are to blame for many women being forced into lives of prostitution. "We need to take our campaign into strip clubs," she said. Stop Trafficking of People's Corinne Sandenberg warned women are lured into the country on false pretences. She said parliament's justice portfolio committee has to finalize the bill so that offenders can be arrested and prosecuted.
