Crackdown on commercial sex workers launched in Mombasa

21 May 2016, 09:05 Gabriel Ngallah

Mombasa - Following complaints from locals at Likoni Sub-County in Mombasa over the increase of commercial sex workers in the area, police have launched a security operation to arrest those engaging in the business.

Likoni OCPD, Willy Simba said on Thursday that many people have been complaining of increased number of commercial sex workers in Likoni ,some of whom are very young girls of school going age.

Speaking at Likoni Police station, Simba said that police officer will not allow such irresponsible behavior to continue within the area and pledged to launch a crackdown on commercial sex workers in the area.

“As parents, we also share the pain of our young girls lured into prostitution at a very tender age. We will ensure that no such nonsense is taking place in Likoni,” he assured locals.

Simba said that the situation has been perpetuated by parental neglect.

“Parents are to blame for this unfortunate situation at Likoni. They should take full control of their families or else most girls and boys will be lured into early sexually activities for commercial purposes,” he cautioned.

The Likoni Police Boss also squarely criticized religious leaders in the area for not discussing such issues in the houses of worship, urging them to lead the youths towards the right direction.

‘The office restaurant’ and its environs have been cited as the most affected areas where commercial sex workers are begging for sex and money from even high school students.
