South African Government Does Nothing While Prisoners Are Used As Sex Slaves

jailsCape Town – At least 12 local women are being treated as sex slaves in a Mozambique prison while the South African government reportedly does nothing to protect them.

According to the Sunday Times, these women were all arrested after arriving at the Maputo International Airport from either India or Brazil and found to be in possession of drugs.

The alleged drug mules – some of whom have been incarcerated in Cadeia Central de Maputo since 2011 – are being denied basic rights but are forced to have sex with warders in exchange for soap and bread.

During a visit to the prison by the Sunday Times, reporters witnessed off-duty warders visiting prisoners whom they described as their girlfriends.

In addition to this, many of the women claimed they had already served out their sentences but were unable to pay warders bribes in order to be released. Even state-appointed attorneys, whose services are supposed to be free, were demanding fees of up to R100 000 from them.

  1. What can be done to effect the release of these women? Is there a petition to sign or action to take?

    • Kathleen we only highlight the useless situation in South Africa, even Obama comes and goes in and out of South Africa and says nothing about the atrocities or the incompetence of the SA Government. If you are from anywhere else other than SA please write to your senator or government representative about this. South African are constantly signing petition and the government tears it up and and stamps on it with their feet.
