A woman simply known as Kelly of Chitungwiza has taken to prostitution in order to tackle an eye defection that has made her partially blind.
Kelly is said to have joined hands with her boyfriend, who is also offering her protection. Kelly is looking for $500 (N180k).
” My life is no longer the same following the passing on of my mother and this forced me into prostitution my brother,” said Kelly told H-Metro.
“I have no problem of accommodation since I am renting a room with my boyfriend Elton in Unit K Chitungwiza and he is the one who keeps all the money I receive from the men I render services to.
“Elton makes sure he records all the vehicle registration numbers of motorists who hire me and makes sure I am secured.
“I used to stay in Epworth before relocating to Chitungwiza with my boyfriend. Tinomwa chibhodhoro husiku hwose kuti tisanyanyonzwa chando.
“After raising the money I do not see myself continuing in cex work because the life is not good at all and some of the clients want to take advantage of me to give me peanuts.
“It is not a good method to raise money though but I was left without any other option until I agreed with my boyfriend.
“If I find someone to help me I will not continue in the streets. I will invite you home for more detail since I cannot disclose everything in the presence of these ladies; after all I am here for business, ndipewo dollar rekutenga sadza,” said Kelly accompanied by another thigh vendor identified only as Rachel.
Kelly told H-Metro that she comes from Mudzi where most of her relatives live but has since stopped visiting them.
Elton confirmed cohabiting with Kelly saying he makes sure Kelly’s clients do not take advantage of her blindness.
“I record those who engage Kelly for security purposes and I make sure she is kept warm by collecting pieces of cardboard boxes to make fire,” he said.
Rachel told H-Metro that she helps Kelly by holding her hand when approaching her potential clients saying most of the clients are after young ladies.
“Kelly is getting more customers and we have agreed with all hookers around this place that we must not compete with her since she is after raising money for eye surgery,” said Rachel.
“I give her a hand leading her to her clients because it will be dark since she is blind ini ndakatanga ndichinyara ndaizoti ndadhakwa ndotanga kuseka varume vanouya but these days I am now a senior,” said Rachel.
