You are either a child or an adult' Joyce Mkandawire, the communications advisor for the Girls Empowerment Network said many girls are often not given the choice and sometimes adult men (known as hyenas) are hired by the girl’s own parents. Along with an education and childhood cut short, girls suffer a traumatic initiation into sexual relationships, are put at risk of domestic violence and STI's, and have the chance of a career or better life taken away.
Other reports however say the images have been leaked by a wife to a police trainer who was in a secret relationship with the trainee when she was in school.
Just days ago, Whatsapp has become frenzy with pictures of a woman who posed naked for a camera.
It is reported she is an employee of one of the prominent banks in Blantyre city; we are yet to find out.
Please note that the word "black" is in no way meant as an insult -and it isn't only meant to describe a colour of skin (which is obviously brown! In 'black girls' and African women I see hard work, motherhood, pride, grace, power and strength combined with charm, wit, intelligence and charisma.
There seem to be a prejudice among some people that a black girl is "available" when she is posing for pictures. Most of the models featured here are married and they did not have their pictures taken because they are looking for a boyfriend. The aim of the photos on this site is to promote a general concept of African/black beauty -not to disgrace or disrespect people of any race or gender.What really happens when such pictures are taken, nobody knows; but it has become a norm that men, these days, are not afraid to cease a moment and share with the world pictures of their, presumably, lovers or ex-spouses.If it’s a matter of vengeance or just to make fun of the victims, we can’t just figure it out.Many Africans are now living in my country (Denmark) and in the rest of Europe, but their faces are still a relative rare sight in advertising, on magazine covers and other media.Many black people have told me that they are still met with a disapproving stare by white people in the streets of Europe.
