Police arrest 50 day time sex workers, their clients

17 April 2015, 10:47 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - Scores of day time commercial sex workers together with their clients were arrested in Nakuru town Thursday morning as the County government moved in to deal with day time sex trade which is on the rise in the town.

The operation, which was led by County secretary, Joseph Motari saw over 50 day time sex workers and 10 male clients arrested in the mid morning swoop.

Speaking after the swoop, Motari said that the County government is alarmed by the increasing number of day time commercial sex workers conducting business along Nakuru back streets without fear.

“There has been increasing complaints from residents about sex workers who have decided to operate during the day and today we decided to carry out a swoop along the streets from where they operate as well as the brothels and you can see how many we managed to arrest,” said Motari.

Motari said that the sex workers have in the recent past been linked to organized crime gangs that have been robbing people during the day in the town.

“Hundreds of men have lost their valuables in the hands of these people, because some of them are not genuine sex workers but criminals. Once they take you to the room, you will come out naked and many people have fallen prey. As a County government, we will not allow that to continue,” he said.

Those arrested were however released after paying a KES 2 000 fine.
