Government has warned perpetrators of child abuse in the country to be ready to face the law.
Gender and child development minister Nkandu Luo says those that think that they will hide are wasting their time.
Professor Luo says her Ministry is working closely with the child protection unit to ensure children are protected.
Professor Luo states that she is also aware that many people are abusing children in different ways without realizing that the children are the future of the nation.
She has warned that this is why she will not take kindly any report of child abuse because the future of any child has to be protected.
Professor Luo has since appealed to the police and other stakeholders to ensure that the perpetrators to child abuse do not go scot free.
