July 12, 2010 (JUBA) — Police patrols are being used in Juba to curb the rise in prostitution southern Sudan’s capital, an official from the government of Southern Sudan said yesterday.

Many commercial sex workers flocked to Juba, from neighbouring countries as Uganda, Kenya and Congo after a peace agreement was signed between the dominant parties in the north and south in 2005.

At one point the sex industry was growing so fast that the government of Southern Sudan was concerned the capital would turn into a sex tourism destination, Bol Ajiing from Central Equatoria’s regional ministry of culture and heritage told Sudan Tribune in a phone interview from Juba.

Aijiing said that the situation is better now than it was was in 2009 before Custom Market, a former red light area in Juba, was knocked down and relocated to Jebel Kunjur and police and security services gave the issue more attention.

The arrival of foreign sex workers, Sudanese returning from countries with severe HIV/AIDS problems and changing attitudes to sex in south Sudan have led to alarming rates among certain populations according to the UNFPA the UN’s population agency. Sudan’s overall prevalence rate is estimated by UNAIDS to be around 2.3% in the adult population. In South Sudan estimates vary from 1% to 7.2%.

Despite southern Sudan’s Christian character and traditions poverty and crime have meant that attitudes to sex have changed dramatically in south Sudan in the last five years, according to Ajiing.

      They don’t come only from Kenya, Uganda and Congo as my sir said , but also from the NORTHERN Sudan and some are here in the SOUTHERN Sudan or does it mean that, there are no prostitutes in Sudan, they come from Kenya and Uganda, no that is not truth , you are insulting these nations in another words .

      there are beautiful prostitutes here in Sudan, Especially those who were Internal Displace PersonS (.I.D.P .) in the North they know very well on how to sell their sex they are the best at doing it, but people don’t want to reveal and they are now focusing on foreigner , that is not good people must tell the truth this issue of denying the facts is not good, we are Christian let not be bias.

        What do you mean by E-Tribe? You better not be meaning Equatorian Tribe! If that what you really meant, then that is not fair to generalize all the people. Prostitution doesn’t have a tribe, but immoral hearts, and I ask that you appologize to Equatorian people. If I accuse you wrongly, then I appologize to you for intrepreting "E-Tribe" wrongly!

    Dear Minister sex has never stopped anyhwere in Sudan even North Sudan despite of the Sharia laws. Go to Maigoma in Haj Youseif to see hostel for illegal borned children. If they are not still young you will get surprised and say: who brought the cabinet of Islamic fundamenatlist government in Maigoma? Dear Minister in Khartoum if you find girls walking the street from 7 pm to 6 am in Khartoum do not try to help them, they are all naughty. What I would ask the minister to do; is a sex education, Our children must be instructed made aware to know the damge that random sex could cause in the future instead of wailing.

    I’m glad that GoSSS ministries begin to realize wrong and inappropriate activities taking place in South Sudan capital. I can’t imagine how many have died as a result of diseases inflicted by unprotected sex.

    GoSS should take immediate, and appropriate step to reduce or crack down those who are known to be practicing prostitution activities. As I have read statements of people pointing fingers as to who is the prostitute, and who are they prostituting to.

    It is not about who is doing what, it is about finding approaches, and strategies to crack down on those prostitutes to reduce this inappropriate sexual conduct. It is a serious matter, and should not be look at slightly. If use of alcohol is not regulated by law in South Sudan, therefore, prostitution will continue to rise to the peak of mountain.

    Both male and female consume huge volume of alcohol, and they get involve in unprotected sex which will widespread HIV/AIDES and many other STDs.

    Some one should take quick action to intervene, and let’s stop saying tha, there are beautiful prostitutes from the North IDPs, and from Ugana or Kenya. We are all prostitutes if things (alcohol) is not regulated strictly by our government.

    Even If ministers will be prostitutes too. This is serious, and we Citizens whom some are prostitute should stand up together, and condemn this act to allow South Sudanese people live healthy life, and have healthy protected sex.

    There is no particular tribe known for prostitution as many might have think. Not only women are prostitutes but, men are serious prostitutes than women. Let’s fix it now, and reduce sex industry activities. I thank Sudan Tribune for publishing this article.

    Prostitution become common because of mismanaged money which is suppose to be used for constructing roads, and health facilities. Instead, corruption luanched a war on our development money. Use it for something better, than paying for prostitute people. What is wrong with us?

    Thank you

      It is unbelievable that Juba city has become a sex industry for foreigners how did they enter to south territory ? look expired food , fake money and prostitution are now become the order activity of a day made by foreigners and no action has been taken by the government .

      Our country is very young which need a really protection from un necessary act such as prostitution which might later on will destroy our cultures if ordinary citizen are going to copy it which will be a disaster .

      Please protect the nation the government is very weak which can not be able to take care of orphans of HIV victims later on in a future as those who are consumers are civil servant in the government and at the same time are married couples which is really worrying because they death of a married couples left behind a tearful situation but single doesn’t. What they don’t know is that once you messing up around her there once you harm yourself .
