Meru twillight girls

08 November 2012, 11:25 Tony Karomo

Meru is one of those few areas in Kenya that have been noted not to harbour twilight girls due to the local strong culture; those who have been to Meru and Nkubu towns can attest to this.

However, things have changed and Meru is now the new attraction for commercial sex workers.

Police are now planning a major crackdown to eradicate the budding habit of prostitution in these two towns.

It has been noted that young girls from several parts of the country are flocking to Nkubu to have their share of what they did not work for, or rather, what they will work for in the time period following the recent disbursement of tea bonus.

The area police boss John Cheruiyot said that the authorities recorded that prostitution is on the rise after the area was ranked highest with the pay of 5 million in the Meru County.

The OCPD said the girls aged between 15 to 25 years have been flocking on the streets, bars and restaurants at night to attract customers.

This is increasing the levels of insecurity in the area since some of the girls are being used to disrupt peace by criminals.

To those who care, these girls are like your own sisters and children who drop out of school for paid adventure and should be treated or advised accordingly.
