UNBELIEVABLE! Young Virgin Girls Married Off To The Gods Become S£xual Toys To The Priests
May. 19, 2020
Trokosi is a traditional system where virgin girls, some as young as six years old, are sent into Troxovi shrines (shrines for gods) as slaves to make amends for wrongs committed by a member of the virgin girl’s family.
Until the Trokosi system came to the attention of the general public in the 1990s, girls sent to the shrines stayed for life.
After the 90’s some of the priests and elders were willing to let the girls go back home after a few years, for a few months, but had to return whenever they were sent for. When they die, the family must replace her with another virgin girl. This means that the family will pay reparation, of one girl, forever.
In certain parts of Ghana, Benin and Togo, the Trokosi tradition still holds relevance. They dedicate these young girls to the shrines becoming properties of the chief priest in charge of the shrine. They become the “wives of the gods” and are s*xually exploited by the priests and shrine elders.
Once dedicated, they bear the tag Trokosi. These girls fulfil his s*xual desires, cook and work in the farms. Once the gods reveal that a family has committed an atrocity or need to pay for the sins of their forefathers, they are required to send a girl to the priest for pacification.
The tradition implies that they give girls to the chief priest to continue with the family’s atonement every generation. He is free to send her away when she no longer appeals to him.
If there are children born out of the relationship with them, they become the responsibility of the virgin girls’ family.
