Impeccable information reaching Today indicate that some foreign nationals believed to be Chinese commercial sex workers have invaded the Wassa Akropong community, a popular illegal small-scale mining community in the Wassa Amenfi East District of the Western Region.
Some concerned citizens who spoke to Today on condition of anonymity said, “these foreign commercial sex workers are normally brought in by their male counterparts who act as their pimps.”
“They normally charge between GH¢500 and GH¢ 1000 from their clients who are mostly foreigners and indigenous galamsey operators”.
What the residents claimed to be more worrying was that some military personnel believed to have been deployed from Takoradi were allegedly providing 24 hour security for these commercial sex workers.
Our source said some hotels in the Western regional capital have virtually been turned into brothels to harbour these sex workers.
“The Wassa Akropong township has virtually turned into a Chinese town as night clubs, bar and pubs, game and bet centers, grocery shops and supermarkets have bill boards with Chinese inscriptions embossed on them”, the source added.
Some residents who declined to disclose their identities lamented the moral decadence the activities of the Chinese have brought on the region.
