Revision of Vagrancy and Maintenance Acts

Ministry of Justice has undertaken to revise former at Consultative Committee in Parliament. Latter needs canvassing to enable SL to align itself with the CRC which makes it a right to claim both parents by children where SL still holds the man to be head of household while the woman has to right to claim but not necessarily pay nor maintain children. Poorer children continue to be separated from parents on account mostly of poverty while obligation to maintain remains a man’s task irrespective of his income.
