"Sex workers have decided to partner with armed gangs to steal from long distance truck drivers.The sex workers are being used as baits by the gangs to trap the drivers," said Kioko.

He added that the truck drivers are being targeted because they are beleived to be in possesion of huge sums of money whenever they are on the road.

"We are calling on drivers to desist from carrying  huge sums of money into lodges or bars because this makes them a soft target by the sex workers and the gangs.They are advised to find a better way of keeping their money instead of showing it openly," he said.
