Youth group protests child abuse



A group of young people protested the issue of child abuse in the capital on Saturday.

The group – It’s Our Turn – told Eyewitness News ahead of Saturday’s protest that it hopes to encourage those who have been affected by child abuse to speak up.

The issue of child abuse was chosen after 859 reports of child abuse were made in 2017.

Event founder, 23-year-old Beijing Rodgers said, she believes that the nation’s youth need to be motivated to reach for the stars.
