Government must tame prostitution in residential areas
Prostitution is said to be the oldest trade as it can be traced back to the bible many years ago. However, the business keeps on rebranding to satisfy the needs of its prospects.
Koinange Street in Nairobi Central District was known to be a hot spot of the business. Ladies could lineup along this street at night preying for potential clients. The business that used to take place at night, is being transacted in day broad light.
Today you might confuse commercial sex workers with hawkers in Nairobi streets. The street ladies dressed in skimpy dresses flaunting their thighs light up the congested Nairobi streets with an aim of luring clients.
Though the business is illegal in Kenya, commercial sex workers seem not to be worried by law enforcers. The common streets for the illegal trade are Latema and River Road.
