Confessions of a Kenyan prostitute! Tells all about their boyfriends

Vivian and Shiko are in the business of selling their flesh. The two have ventured onto the streets as sex workers in the City of Nairobi to ply their trade, which they also conduct on phone.

The two women have been in the business for years now, and they have come out to speak about the struggles they go through to make their ends meet.

While most of us would rebuke what they do, they narrate their story beginning with why they opted for the job.

“Commercial sex work is work like any other job because when you have kids, and you have house rent to take care of, there is no way you can just sit and expect money to come by your door,” Vivian said.

She narrated her journey and how she settled into being a sex worker.

“I lived in Nairobi for two years looking for employment but to no avail. I sold muguka (miraa) and even worked as a bar maid. Working as a bar maid is what really triggered me into doing sex work because I used to work at night and sometimes, I would go home without even a coin to buy food. Nikaona it’s like my boss was taking me for granted. I started getting clients from the place, which to some extent was feeding me, and that is how I realised it was not a bad job. That is how I started sex work.

Right now, I can afford to pay for a house and even educate my kid as a single mum.”

The duo believes that for one to be employed in Kenya, you need to have a godfather, which they did not have, despite efforts to look for a more decent job.

They opted to have their own business that does not require any ‘capital’ other than their body, but “lazima pia ukue umejitambua by carrying your condoms for protection”.

There is a difference between sex work and commercial sex work, and they (Shiko and Vivian) explained it.

“We are now commercial sex workers but we started it very low because for one to get to where we are, you have to go through so much. Harassment by city council, sometimes the clients deny you your money and even at times you are beaten up.”
