I’m not bragging but that’s who l am.
If you come across me, I’m not rich, but one can best place me among the big bosses.
You cannot really tell that I’m a ghetto product, born and bred in Rimuka high-density suburbs of the city of Gold (Kadoma).
Ghetto youths to date have been associated with a multiplicity of indecencies to date. Some are well known drug addicts, commercial sex workers, burglars, conmen, rapists among others.
Even statistics can witness that ghetto remains the crime hub to which in most instances, ghetto youths are at the fore front. It is not a taboo to see even a minor in ghetto committing crime. Indecencies have been daily orders in the ghetto hood.
At times, this is not out of ghetto youths own make. Environment influence, idleness influence. Some have been victims of school dropouts, child marriages, abuse and unemployment.
This have ignited and catalysed some to resort into indecencies.
However, it is high time that ghetto youths raise their flag high. It is high time ghetto youths stop any form of indecency and embark on income generating projects that reduce crime in the ghetto hood
