Child Labour

Child labor is a quick phenomenon that is fas and rapidly growing in these region. Having been born and brought up in an area where sugarcane plantations characterizes the farms and big trucks carrying the cane to the factories, many young people who do not understand labor laws get involved directly in wither packaging, cutting, and guarding the cone together with adults. They end up with small wages which do not sustain them or their siblings & parents. The Kenyan law is very strict on child labour but facilitation of the law is adamant slow and lacks willingness to curb. The ministry involved is currently on a crackdown to curb the vice and is advising the parents to stop what they are doing.
