Mayotte : Illegal prostitution on the rise
Some young women sell their charm in hot areas of Mayotte. The phenomenon is becoming increasingly widespread today, with the mass arrival of illegal from Madagascar and Comoros on the local sex market.
 
Landed illegally at night aboard the kwassa-kwassa from the Comoros archipelago, these young women sometimes accompanied by their husbands fled poverty to win the French promised land. But without the possibility of obtaining declared employment in Mayotte, these clandestine prostitute themselves in order to feed their families.
 
For the most of them, they live in huts on the heights of M'Tsapéré or in the neighbourhood of Kawéni, located north of Mamoudzou.
