Foreign workers sexually abuse young Angolan women
Foreigners working in Angola's booming construction sector are sexually abusing underage girls in the southern city of Huila, an anti-Aids organisation has said.
Guenda Santo said her organisation Prazador's HIV-prevention work had uncovered a widespread problem of wealthy expatriates who work in the area sexually abusing 12- to 16-year-old girls.
"We have seen many young girls with mixed-race babies, and when we ask them who the father is, they answer that it's a white man who works on a construction project," Santo told reporters."Then, when we talk to the families, we discover the girls are minors."
In an interview on Angolan state radio, Santo said the men take advantage of the girls' poverty to lure them into sex.
