Sex workers storm police station to protest against assault

11 March 2015, 12:44 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - There was drama at the Nakuru central police station Wednesday morning after a group of scantily dressed commercial sex workers stormed the office of the OCPD Bernard Kioko demanding the arrest and prosecution of police officers who allegedly sexually assaulted their colleague inside a patrol van.

The group which consisted of both male and female sex workers chanted slogans terming police officers as sex pests who only want to take advantage of the sex workers in fulfilling their sexual needs.

Naomi Wangari, a sex worker activist who spoke on behalf of the sex workers, said they are tired of harassment by police officers whom she said demand sex whenever they arrest them.

“Anytime we get in the hands of police officers, we must give in and sleep with them whether we like it or not because if you don’t, they take you to the cells or worse assault you as they did to our friend,” she lamented.

Nakuru OCDP, Bernard Kioko had a hard time convincing the sex workers to leave the station and even his threats to arrest them bore no fruit.

The group left the station after being given an assurance that the police officers suspected to have assaulted the sex worker have been suspended and are being probed.

“Your complaints have been heard and the case is being worked on. The two officers have even been suspended so there is no reason for you to camp here,” said Kioko.
