Upon reaching Algeria, she was robbed of her funds for the Mediterranean crossing and had to return to Guinea, where she encountered social stigma, with women in her position being labeled as 'bandits and prostitutes'.

In Conakry, motorcycle taxis are popular

01 Mar 2018  |  www.bbc.com
Motorcycle taxis in Conakry, Guinea, have become a popular mode of transportation, especially among the youth and students, due to the lack of public transport options. Despite providing a livelihood for many, including graduates like Thierno Souleymane Diallo and Mohamed Lamine Diallo, the sector is fraught with risks such as high accident rates, with motorcycles involved in 34% of traffic accidents, and criminal activities targeting drivers. The police spokesperson Boubacar Kassé criticizes the drivers' behavior, and the National Directorate of Road Safety, led by Boubacar Sarr, is implementing safety measures. The sector's dangers are underscored by the high number of motorcycle-related hospitalizations, as reported by Yacouba Camara, head of orthopedics and traumatology at the Sino-Guinean Friendship Hospital.
