The right of a child in a family

A child should have rights in his family such as the right to be nourished, dressed and educated. There are families that do not respect those rights and fail to dress and educate their children and because of that children go away looking for jobs. The people who employ such children don’t pay them properly and sometimes don’t pay them at all. They ignore the fact that those children have the right to be paid.
For example, on the Irambo Avenue, there is a woman who employed a child and never paid for the work he/she did so the child decided to leave and that women didn’t like it. There was a lot of shouting. Mothers, those children are in this world because of us, how come we, as parents, make them suffer? Where are children’s rights? Beloved mothers, please, let respect children’s right.

Endeleya uwasemeye

Batoto kabisa banatesekaka. Kwanza kubatumikisha ni makosa. Kubatumikisha bila kubalipa, ayo ni makosa ya kupita! Minafurahi sana kabisa Mama Rehema kuwona unabasemeya. Uendeleye vile na uwambiye bajirani bako baache ile tabiya mubaya ya kutumukisha batoto. Batoto banapashua kuwa ku masomo apana ku kazi. Aksante sana.
