Mozambique women prisoners forced into prostitution under threat

Inmates of Mozambique’s largest women’s prison are regularly forced by guards to engage in prostitution for fees ranging from 40 to 200 euros, according to a survey conducted by a local NGO, Center for Public Integrity (CIP).

“The report, published on Tuesday, said: “Women in the Ndlavela women’s prison (Maputo) are regularly extracted by guards for exploitation. Some are taken out “three or four times a week to have sex with people they say they don’t know”. Justice Minister Helena Kida visited the facility on Wednesday and announced an investigation, the results of which should be known in a fortnight.

According to the IPC, the clients are usually “well-placed people who seek pleasure with women who have not had sex for a long time”.
