“I can say the girls are still in school doing grade 9-10, they sell their body without a reason, they just say they need money to buy alcohol and soft life” he said
“These girls are learners of the local high school and everyone knows that here” he added
It is alleged that some local Tarven owners knows about this but they are not doing anything because is an attraction for their business.
