Nakuru - Commercial sex workers in Nakuru town are now accusing a section of businessmen in the town for allegedly offering them as sacrifices to gain wealth.
The sex workers under their umbrella, Nakuru sex workers union said that their members are being targeted by businessmen they claimed are devil worshippers who kill them as sacrifice to their gods.
Speaking Tuesday in Nakuru town where they protested against the killing of a sex worker on Saturday, they said that the mysterious killings of sex workers should be blamed on devil worshippers in the town.
Led by the patron of Nakuru sex workers union Mary Njeri, they said that their members are killed only to be found later with missing body parts.

"It is disturbing that a sex worker can go with a client at night only to be found dead in the morning with vital body parts missing. We know that some rich people here are using sex workers to get more riches," said Njeri.
She added: "They kill sex workers and take parts like eyes and private parts which are used in rituals."
Njeri added that they have lost over seven members since last year and accused police of doing nothing to arrest the killers and protect sex workers.
"They are targeting sex workers because they know we are soft targets and easy to get but the police must protect us because we are Kenyans too," she said.
On Saturday, a sex worker was found murdered at a Nakuru CBD lodging after a night with a male client.
Her body had stab wounds and missing parts.
