They first had a peaceful demonstration as there were reported cases when some of them were killed by their clients, later they demonstrated as the wanted the government to legalize their work and later they demonstrated for people to stop calling them prostitutes but call them casual sex workers, the government overlooked their request of legalizing this business and at the same time people have not stopped calling them prostitutes, somehow I can say that the government have legalized this business indirectly as in most of the towns there are dens where men visit if they feel in need to pressurize themselves away from homes and this dens operates 24 hours.
When a man leaves his house, he leaves to go and hustle for his family he don’t keep on calling to check on what his wife is doing and when he want to know what she is doing or want to know something he simply text, there is those day he don’t work and spend his time with his family when he is working he leave at this time and come back at this time, when he will be late he usually text and say he will be. And with this a woman can be in a position to do what he want over the day and be back home on time and this is what have welcomed many married women in this business.
Married women are the one hawking their body during the day, according to my source who is married and a mother of three she says that this is the only type of job that she finds convenient for her and she is able to help where she can. When I asked her how her husband have never noticed or if he have never questioned her source of money, she explained it that when he did she was able to answer because she plays her cards right, in that ksh 1000 she makes every day and that’s when the business is not doing good she saves it and say that it was her turn in a Chama and that’s where he got all the money she have.
For her to be on the safe said she don’t give her customers her number as with this no one will ever call, she also added that she know many married women in business and also she can point out some prominent people wives and daughter who are in this business but for them they don’t do it for money but for fun.
This is according to an email that I received at firstname.lastname@example.org and the interview I conducted via phone call.
