Some commercial sex workers in Accra region of Ghana have announced an increase in their charges which they blamed on economic hardship.
According to JoyNews, the sex workers revealed that the increment in fuel prices coupled with general constraints, have affected their work so badly that they had to increase their charges.
Their clients are now being charged between $50 and $300 for a brief session lasting between 15-20 minutes and as much as $300 for a full night.
The sex workers also pleaded with their clients to bear with them over the increase.
It was recalled that commercial sex workers in Tana River County, Kenya, digitized their business by forming WhatsApp groups to sustain their trade.
The sex workers said they are yet to recover from the effects of Covid-19 despite the lifting of regulations by the government, thus forcing them to look for other means of sustaining their trade.
