Saturday, September 7, 2019-Commercial sex workers from Machakos County are demanding for free lubricants and condoms from the Country Government.
While speaking to the media, the sex workers gave Governor Alfred Mutua an ultimatum of one month to provide them with their tools of work for free.
“We are here as sex workers, demand to know what exactly is Mutua planning to do for this key population within this county to ensure sex workers get free lubricants and condoms. Sex work is work because it pays our bills and feeds our children," a representative of the sex workers told journalists.
The sex workers said that Kenya receives high number of tourists yearly because of their services and so the County Government should hear their plea since they make a huge economic contribution to the country.
"Many tourists visit Kenya because of us.We want our rights respected and be provided with security to go about our businesses before October 1. A woman can do anything if she lacks money. If we stop prostitution today, there is a child who will not be able to attend classes,” The representative added.
