Women of Africa denounces plans by 'flesh networks' and some individuals to sexually exploit and abuse African women during World Cup
A London-based human rights organisation, Women of Africa (WOA), has denounced plans by 'flesh networks' and some individuals to sexually exploit and abuse African women during the FIFA World Cup.

The organisation says states that it is, "Very concerned to know that alongside preparations for the games, there are robust plans to traffic our vulnerable women and girls to South Africa for sexual exploitation during this historic world event for financial gains."

WOA's stance, contained in a strongly-worded press statement issued in London, is a reaction to an online publication which revealed plans by the 'flesh networks' to supply women and girls from various countries, including Nigeria, to ‘take care of the men’ during the soccer showpiece.
