Last week, the KZN Health MEC addressed a number of issues plaguing young people.

An increase in teenage pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, and HIV as brought up in the three-day youth conference in the Impaphala area has lead to MEC Nomagugu Simelane voicing her opinion.

As reported by IOL, Nomagugu urged young people to keep themselves healthy and take every precaution in ensuring their safety. 

She said from recent statistics, 1,300 girls were getting infected with HIV every week in the country, while there were a reported 18,550 births by girls aged 10 to 17 in KwaZulu-Natal during the 2019/20 financial year alone.

One of the major topics brought up concerned older men who prey on very young girls. Often times this can be defined as a predator.

However, glucose guardian/sugar daddy relationships have been gaining more traction in Mzansi.

'Sugar Daddies' are older men who facilitate a transactional relationship, typically characterised by an older wealthier person and a younger person in need of financial assistance.

The MEC says: "We need to change that, because teenage or unplanned pregnancy is a problem that we as a society must address and deal with.”
