The governor said: “This is not a small matter. I want this fully investigated to find everyone involved. It is a clear case of human trafficking and the government has made it perfectly clear they will not tolerate this behavior.

“Civil servants, and of course everyone in society must not buy sex from minors. I am setting up a committee of enquiry at provincial level to find all those involved.

“Those involved in this behavior will face criminal prosecution”, he continued. “It won’t be swept under the carpet”.

He added further that all such websites need to be shut down along with others selling fake products as well.
