A list of 21 prostitutes (Ashawo) joints in the Greater Accra Region and the amount of monies charged at the various places have been compiled and it has been circulating online.
Prostitution is illegal in Ghana but the trade goes on and hardly has anybody been jailed in Ghana for engaging in the sex trade.
Sometimes arrests are made but the suspects are just left off the hook, with some allegations of security officers themselves patronising their services to pardon them in exchange.
Some people in high public offices and politicians are among those who patronise their services despite the fact that their trade is illegal.
Now, whether you like it or not prostitution is ongoing in designated areas in the national capital Accra in the full glare of the police just like the use of motorbikes for commercial purposes also known as Okada.
Interestingly, the trade has become so lucrative in Ghana that foreigners migrate here purposely to engage in it together with their Ghanaian counterparts.
Every joint charge differently depending on the kind of service the client wants and the location of the joint–sex worker in plush areas charge higher than those in areas considered low class.
A Ghanaian Facebook user, Amakye Nie, has curated a list of popular Ashawo joints in the Greater Accra Region and their prices.
