Ghanaian prostitutes fight over customers...

Old or ‘senior’ prostitutes fighting the much younger prostitutes in the ‘ashawo’ business over ‘customers’ and their charges was the chaotic situation the people of Koforidua in the New Juaben municipality of the Eastern region of Ghana had to deal with last Wednesday, according to a Bryt FM report.

The residents were shocked when the ‘senior’ prostitutes pounced on the young or 'junior ashawos', and accused them of taking over their business.

The report further states that the so-called old or ‘senior’ prostitutes violently attacked their ‘juniors’ on the street for charging low prices which according to them has had a negative effect on their operations.

They have, as a result, vowed to deal with any young or junior ‘ashawo’ girl who interferes in their business.

“Instead of charging GHC50, these young ‘ashawos’ just accept GHC10 which has taken the attention of men(customers) from us (the seniors),” some complained.

Meanwhile, some sellers who spoke to Bryt FM also added that the senior ones have been harassing the young ones for a long time for reasons best known to themselves.
