Liberia's booming sex trade
In 2003, Liberia came out of one of the most brutal conflicts in Africa. Eight years on, business is booming, infrastructure is moving at a high speed and investors are once again scrambling to exploit the opportunities in the West African country.
But alongside these developments, another trade is booming in Liberia. Due to limited economic opportunities for the citizenry especially the youth, young women are turning to sex trade for a living.
In the capital, Monrovia and other major towns and cities, women often parade at street corners and along busy roads to sell their bodies for cash.
In this edition of Fifty-Fifty, Liberian journalist Adolphus Mawolo unveils Monrovia's red light district and the booming sex trade in the city.Tweet
