[] – In light of the video which has gone viral on social network with four high school students having oral sex, Education Minister Priya Manickchand has called on persons, especially young people and school children to refrain from abusing their gadgets, especially mobile phones.

According to Manickchand, with the advent of social media and the clicking of just a single button to send information anywhere in the world, persons need to be more cognizant of what they do, where they do it and if recording every episode of their lives is necessary.

She said the decision to upload photographs and videos of almost everything has the potential to damage one’s personality and image for the rest of their lives.

“These things can really stay with you for the rest of your lives, whatever the activities are, ease up on the use of the phone and the obsession of capturing everything on the phone and sending it across the world,” Minister Manickchand cautioned.

The video shows two girls performing oral sex on two boys, all dressed in their school uniform from a popular High School in Georgetown. While the sexual act was being performed, another person in the room recorded it.

Manickchand had told iNews that she is “disturbed” at the video and that her Ministry first became aware of it on Thursday, October 02.

She explained that an investigation was immediately launched. The Ministry is seeking to find out when and where the incident took place and the identity of those involved.
