Prostitution may be a last resort for women and even some men while others see it as an easy way of making money. Heck, there are countless of ‘high end’ prostitutes all over the world today and some have even managed to create empires through this choice of career. Rosemary, who came to Nairobi with the hopes of greener grass, has been in the game since 1984 and her journey is one very shocking one. “I got married at 16, but after some time in marriage, my husband started neglecting us after I gave birth to five children. I could have had 10 children were it not for two miscarriages. I joined some women along Digo Road where we would wait for clients day and night and charged Sh5 for our services.” According to Rosemary, she earned 5 bob until the early 2000’s when it rose to 50 shillings then finally 100 bob. She would handle up to 40 men on a good day and between 5 to 10 on a bad day!   “Until 2000’s, no one paid any attention to us whenever we reported assault cases. Even the police would arrest us at the city centre without any reason.”  What about protection? Well a lot of men preferred having sex without condoms and if a woman suggested it, they would probably lose the client to one who was willing to go without. This just shows how dangerous this could get with the rising number of HIV/Aids cases. “Nowadays I see young girls joining us here and within days, they would be driving their own vehicles or running businesses. Unfortunately, some of them steal from customers. They make quick money and invest well, but compared to years back, they are now too extreme even in their dressing. We used to dress nicely without exposing our breasts or butts to attract men.”   “Nowadays we depend on long-term customers. In fact, I had started small leso business after getting Sh70,000 loan from a local bank, but fire razed down my house and shop in March. Even my baptismal card and other documents were burnt. That and other problems pushed me back to the business.”   “It has been a long journey and I’ve slept with more than 5,000 men in more than 20 years. I’ve been in the field, even my children know it, and used to visit but when they grew up and started their families, they stopped frequenting Nairobi. It’s the fire tragedy and raising these children that forced me to go back to it again. Before the fire, I was buying kangas from Mombasa and selling them in Nairobi. I had borrowed more than Sh70,000 from a local bank. I hope that things will change one day and God will intervene along the way.”   Ladies, watch out! I Was Dating A Facebook Conman And I was Not His Only Victim- Winnie’s Story
