Child jockey Imam Dudu (8, centre) watches a friend and fellow child jockey vaping on an e-cigarette at their camp in the evening after racing in the 'Regional Police Chief's Cup 2019'.

Racing is deeply rooted in the island's culture but the use of children, usually aged between 5-10, as jockeys is controversial with activists seeing it as a human right's issue but supporters claiming it is a tradition that offers financial rewards to impoverished families.
