Euroman the ethically superior

just can’t seem to help his creepy self:

The UN children's fund Unicef, which looked at resorts along Kenya's coast, found that 15,000 girls aged 12 to 18 were engaged in casual sex for money.

Another 2,000-3,000 girls and boys were involved in full-time prostitution, said the study - carried out jointly with the Kenyan government.

European men represented half of all their clients, the report said.
Though the Kenyans themselves are acting to limit those who enable the illegal trade it needs to be put into the context of the position that they’re in. Their economy depends on tourism, and to a degree it’s being held hostage by rich foreigners acting out the symptoms of a diseased post-modern society. Imagine just how far this is to go and how much they spend to show that they’ve already thrown their humanity away.
Unicef Kenya representative, Heimo Laakkonen said Kenyans top the list of abusers making up to 38 per cent of the children's clients.

He said: “As for the tourists themselves, the report shows that visitors from some European countries like Germany, Switzerland and Italy top the list of tourists who abuse Kenyan children.”
But let’s keep this in perspective. Local clients are outnumbered by Europeans who come from thousands of kilometers for the abuse the most vulnerable of those they both have a desire for and look down on – indulging an imagined personal invincibility as having the power to treat people like chattel.
