Sex workers have become a problem in Mbale as we talk right now. Immediately, when it clocks 6pm, Ms Mbabazi Lydia leaves her three children at her rented house in one of the slums withind Mbale Town and heads to a local pub.
Ms Mbabazi and other sex workers are flooding the streets of Mbale which is worrying local authorities.
“I used to leave home at 8pm but nowadays, I leave early and reach here at about 6pm. I find some of my clients waiting for me,” Mbabazi says.
Most of these prostitutes stage on public Street, Central Road, near North Road Primary School, Market places, Lorry Park, and around Churches, which is a disgusting to residents living around.
According to Mr Kawanguzi Yasin, who is the municipal deputy speaker, he claimed most sex workers are from western, northern and West Nile regions and Kenya.
“We are going to create a by-law to regulate sex workers because we will not allow this menace to continue untamed. We cannot move in the town with children when it clocks 8pm. They are everywhere,” Yasin said.
When we approached Mr James Kutosi, the municipal council spokesperson, he cautioned about the increasing number of sex workers in Mbale town.
“Police officers and security guards collect money from prostitutes to allow them operate. This is what is fueling it,” James said.
