Aubrey Wade

Freetown, Sierra Leone

The chairman of the Belgium Sellers Association hears concerns from two members ahead of passing judgement on a dispute. The association takes its name from a block of streets in central Freetown where traders and street youth sell predominantly used goods. The trade originated before the war with used goods, including fridges, cars, furniture, etc, from Europe loaded into containers and imported from Antwerp, Belgium. The name stuck.
The association chairman sits on the local police partnership board, levies fines, and passes intelligence on criminal activity to police investigations. A phrase used amongst the street traders that denotes the relationship: 'If you don't pay God, you will pay the Devil'.
