Prostitution is becoming a big trade on the streets of Bamenda, the biggest city in the Northwest region of Cameroon. Recently, The Cameroon Journal took to the streets of the city to find out why many girls — as young as 14 are resorting to prostitution without any remorse. For some, they joined the trade because of circumstances, but for others it was a necessity. Some of their stories are heartbreaking and pathetic, but the people themselves do not think it is time for them to look for jobs in regular job markets just yet. Nicoline, 21, who hails from Wum, Menchum division, confessed that she was married at the age of 16 but decided to checkout of her marital home because her husband openly cheated on her.
Family rape is an issue commonly happening in our homes.
