Mabvuku, Tafara Residents Want ‘Brothels’ Demolished

Residents of Tafara, Mabvuku and Caledonia in Harare have expressed concern over an influx of sex workers whom they are accusing of contributing to moral decay and fuelling criminal activities.

The prostitutes have allegedly turned these high-density suburbs into an extensive red-light district.

Women in Action (WA), a women’s group whose major task is to fight prostitution in Caledonia, says most of the sex workers come from as far as Goromonzi and Ruwa in Mashonaland East. Cecilia Mutenga, chairlady of WA said:In our case, we are having sex workers that are coming from such far-away places as Goromonzi and Ruwa among others.

By dusk, these scantly dressed ladies will be lining our streets, making suggestive gestures to whoever passes by.

These ladies must be driven away since they are bringing with them vices and moral decadence.

Mutenga said her group, which falls under the Caledonia Residents Association Trust (CRAT), wants the buildings in which the sex workers use as their love nests to be destroyed.
