Some commercial sex workers are at the government’s throat claiming the 2017 budget read by the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta in parliament does not directly address problems in their business.
“We were expecting the government to remove taxes on the importation of condoms so that more people will get interested in the prostitution business”, president of prostitutes in Kumasi exclusively told mynewsgh.com.
“It is discriminatory that the budget captured head porters and left us. …meanwhile, the work we do is more difficult than them ….We all need government assistance to carry our work”
“If government announces free condoms for us, that one alone will make our work easier without fear of contracting any sexual transmitted diseases and also it will attract clients”
They told mynewsgh's Kwabena Danso-Dapaah legalizing their work will help government to develop the nation through their taxes.
The President of the whores Association stated that they are about two thousand across the Ashanti Region alone.
They have therefore appealed to President Nana Akufo-Addo to heed to their concern by initiating a free distribution of condoms and also legalize prostitution so the work will be safe for them.
