Whorehouses becoming rampant in the Somali capital Mogadishu

Mogadishu, September 30, 2018 (Hornnews24) – The head of women’s folk for the Somali government, Jawahir Barqab, has said on Saturday that scores of brothels were operating in the Somali capital Mogadishu where illegal prostitution is rampant.

According to a report, these organized brothels have their own management staff, chefs and bartenders. Some of these whorehouses use trafficked or drug-addicted young girls who are controlled by pimps.

Although it is illegal to operate a brothel or buy and sell sex in Somalia, yet girls of 12 to 20 are forced into having sex for money in those brothels. But some of them are believed to be there for their own accord.

Jawahir Barqab believes that Lido beach is now the city’s red-light district and contains increasing brothels.

Jawahir Barqab has called upon the Mogadishu police and administration to take appropriate measures against all those who involved in these illegal whorehouses to prevent such immorality and bad habits in the society and also to prevent the spread of social disease.

It is possible that Jawir will loose her job because of the revealing the secret of whorehouses operating in the Somalia capital, in the neighbourhood of the Somali presidential palace.
