Nakuru - Nakuru west MP, Samuel Arama now wants the County government of Nakuru to legalise prostitution in the town to put to an end the continued killings of sex workers in the area.
Speaking Sunday in Nakuru town, Arama said if the trade is legalised, sex workers can conduct their business in an organised environment.
Arama said that sex work is not bad if done in a regulated environment.
"Prostitution is not bad as people say because it involves two people and the County assembly should pass laws to to legalise it and allow sex workers to operate freely without being victimised," he noted.

Arama added that he has been to India where the trade is legalised and the government makes money from it.
"In India, sex work is a normal business; there are designated buildings where people do their thing and this benefits the government through revenue collection," he said.
He called on police to protect sex workers in Nakuru and bring to book those killing them.
