General Secretary of the People’s National Convention, Mr. Bernard Mornah has expressed concern over the silence of government and the general public on the state of prostitutes at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle following last Wednesday’s fire and flood twin disaster.
According to him, many of the prostitutes including foreign nationals had lost their lives as a result of the disaster.
“The water consumed a chunk of them and nobody is talking about them because our society doesn’t want to talk about the issue of prostitution but the chunk of the prostitutes that normally crowd around that area at odd times in the night where are they gone to” he said.
“The identity of these people is in a problem because some are foreign nationals so its very difficult to identify who these personalities will be, DNA test or no DNA test, we will end up with bodies that nobody can identify,” Mr. Mornah added.
In an interview with Univers news at the National Memorial Service for the over 150 lives that were lost in the tragic accident, Mr. Mornah lamented that Ghanaians had remained silent because of the concerns of morality about the activities of the prostitutes, noting that most of the sex workers were found at the exact disaster site and were largely affected by the incident.
Over 150 people have so far been confirmed dead from the disaster with some yet to be identified by their families. Several others are currently on admission in Ghana’s major hospitals receiving treatment for various degrees of injuries and burns.
