Sex workers take 50% cut in solidarity with Museveni

22 January 2016, 15:03 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - Sex workers who operate from Fort-portal town in western part of Uganda claim that they have reduced their prices because president Museveni whom they are supporting is campaigning in the region.

According to their coordinator, Barbra Amooti, the majority of sex workers in that town support President Museveni because of the peace they enjoy.

She said that although they are not rich, which is the reason they hawk their bodies, they earn enough to survive and over time will manage to start up small businesses.

Amooti said, ''We resolved to reduce the amount we charge our customers as part of our contribution to the ruling party. We will inform all our customers that we are giving them a cut because president Museveni is currently campaigning in our region.''

Before Museveni went to western Uganda, the sex workers who mostly operate from the streets were charging UGX 10 000 for a short encounter and UGX 20 000 for overnight sex but have reduced it to UGX 5 000 and UGX 10 000 respectively.

''Incidentally, they are minting more money because more men can afford UGX 5 000 and are rushing for their services in big numbers,'' said Zurah Abwooli, a shopkeeper in Fort-portal.
