Sex workers storm police station over attempted murder of colleague

21 February 2016, 22:20 Joseph Njung'eh

Thika -  Dozens of sex workers stormed Thika Police station to register a complaint over an attempted murder of their colleague.

The sex workers complained about the harsh treatment they receive from some of their clients who occasionally assault them physically, sometimes leading to death yet no action is taken against the attackers.

Caroline Njeri, 26, said she escaped death narrowly after a prospective customer attempted to kill her on Thursday night.

Njeri said that the night watchmen at a popular joint alerted her that she had an admirer who was interested in her services, only for the alleged customer to demand that she undress before agreeing on the price.

“I told him I cannot undress until we agree on a price. Since it was around 12:30 am, I told him that I will charge him 1 500 until morning, and he consented,” said Njeri, adding that the man declined to wear a condom leading to the confrontation.

“I gave him a condom and he lied to me that he had put it on but when I attempted to physically ascertain, he prevented me and demanded that we continue by force but I refused,” she said.

She narrated that the client started hitting her and also attempted to strangle her, saying that that was his job and there was no chance for her to escape.

“I screamed for help but he said even if I screamed, he would still kill me. I bit his finger and then inserted my finger into his mouth, forcing him to let go of me,” said Njeri.

Her screams drew the attention of the building’s watchman who came to her rescue; the man was arrested by police officers on patrol.

Police said the suspect will be arraigned in court next week.

Murang’a and Kiambu Counties Sex Workers’ Spokesman, Barack Ondieki condemned the incident saying that it is wrong for people to disrespect other people's source of livelihood.
