"I Slept With Several Men in Bush for Money" Mombasa Street Worker Narrates Stress During Curfew

Sex workers from Mombasa county have lauded the government’s move in lifting the nationwide curfew, which has been on for more than two years.

According to the majority who spoke to media, lifting of curfew and lockdown of counties is a hopeful that their business will swing into full action.

“With the removal of the curfew, we expected closing of bars and restaurants not to be affected, since these are areas where we get our clients for the revival of the economy. Let government agencies consider bars and hotels to operate full time to allow us to earn a living too,” one of the street workers narrates.

Jane Wangari (not the real name) added with the government’s measures to curb the spread of Coronavirus, street workers had been forced to work during the day, in their houses, clients vehicles and bushes, which she says was not sufficient.

“We have experienced tough times with lack of facilities to do decent business. At times, despite the risks involved, we were being forced to take clients into our houses or offer services in the bush just to earn that extra coin. Like for me, I once slept with several men in bush for money,” Jane said.
