Proportional Representation legislator Lynette Karenyi says some of the male legislators in Parliament are guilty of abusing young girls especially those in institutions of higher learning.
Most students in universities who fail to secure residence at their institutions of learning end up looking for accommodation elsewhere which is often expensive and beyond their reach.
The expensive accommodation leaves the girls vulnerable to abuse by men including legislators.
Honourable Karenyi said the situation can only be solved if Minister of Finance Mthuli Ncube avails more funding to construct additional accommodation.
“I am calling upon the Minister to put more money in constructing accommodation for the students and these youngsters especially the girls who are exposed to sugar daddies.
“I am not ashamed to even say some of the sugar daddies are fellow Members of Parliament. They go to these areas and prey on the young girls and these young girls call these sugar daddies blessers,” she said.
Honourable Karenyi added that “the child thinks they are having a good life because they can afford food and all other luxuries which are needed for youngsters.
“Minister, please put more money in the accommodation of these students so that we ease the problem of our youngsters,” she said.
