Boshielo delighted by pupil’s invention to curb human trafficking


A Limpopo pupil has invented a device that can help in the fight against crimes on women and children.
Bohlale Mphahlele is a young scientist who has invented an “Alerting Ear Piece”, which can track victims of human trafficking and gender based violence.

She is a grade 11 learner from SJ van der Merwe Technical High School in Lebowakgomo Circuit, Capricorn South District.
The device was recently showcased at the Eskom Expo for Young Scientists, in the category for Engineering-electronics and embedded systems.
It is a small object that can be inserted in earrings and capture photos of perpetrators, enabling the police to quickly identify them. 

Limpopo MEC for Department of Education, Polly Boshielo said she is delighted by the young girl’s invention.
“The past few weeks have been difficult on us as sector, when we experienced the tormenting pain of gender based violence on our learners. It is a difficult thing to go through as a mother and a leader. We are always looking for answers and ways to protect our children,and this invention by our learner gives me hope that we shall overcome.”

Boshielo added, “I am firm believer in technology and its capacity to address some of the challenges we encounter. It is a proud moment to see that all our efforts towards improving technical schools in the province are yielding results.”
