The sex workers actually want to be free to conduct their business, saying this is the way they earn a living. Prostitutes are no longer found only in traditional guesthouses dotted around the sprawling townships of the capital city but also conduct their business in such places as market stalls at night. This writer confirmed this, this week at Comesa and Soweto markets where in revealing attire, the sex workers could be seen sitting weary by the gate sides of such structures braving the night-cold as, like vultures, they waited patiently for clients while sipping-in chilled beer.
One of the prostitutes Mary Mbewe opened up and, without a whimper, urged the Government to legalise prostitution as that was the only job she enjoyed doing, the only one which could sustain her. By hours everyday, many stalls, as well as nearly all rooms at a named guesthouse are fully booked with more than 70 per cent of the clientele being sex workers.
At the sight of a car beam through the gate gaps, energy seems to suddenly seize them as they would immediately take a livelier and appealing posture. Although prostitution is illegal in Zambia, these girls and women from as young as 14 years old have devised an operation method that even law-enforcers have found tricky to address.
This is in anticipation that they would have made more than the room charge by checking-out time the following day. Another sex worker, Yvonne Musonda from Matero Township who mistook this reporter for a potential client, explained that a short time service had now gone up to K50 from the previous K30 when the rooms cost K We also measure against the cash.
In an event that she runs out of condoms, Yvonne would easily fetch for some more from her friends in other rooms. She revealed that most rooms were occupied by sex workers and that even the security guards were aware of who occupied which room. Yvonne said she was into prostitution because of her five-year-old son and that she was ready to quit if only she could find a job that could give her slightly more than K1, per month.
