The government says it is committed to safeguarding Zimbabweans through policies and partnerships that curb human trafficking.

This comes as the International Organisation of Migration (IOM) has capacitated the trafficking in person’s secretariat, by availing equipment that is expected to improve their operations.

Home Affairs Permanent Secretary, Mr Melusi Machiya said there is need to establish a mechanism that indentifies victims of human trafficking and comes up with a lasting solution to the problem.

IOM Chief of Mission in Zimbabwe, Ms Lily Sanya said her organisation is committed to partnering Zimbabwe to curb cases of human trafficking.

Despite limited resources, the government last year managed to help victims of human trafficking in Kuwait and the equipping of the new office is expected to effectively deal with cases of human trafficking in Zimbabwe.
