Commercial sex workers from Adansi-Obuasi in Ashanti region are pleading with the government to make legal their trade due to the economic stagnation in Ghana to enable them operate freely.
A representative of the Adansi-Obuasi sex workers Mama Sweet said:
‘We want government to legalise prostitution by giving us licenses to operate, so that we can work morning, afternoon and evening. Some of us were introduced into prostitution by our friends due to lack of financial support from family members.’
