STANDING at a dimly lit street corner opposite a once popular nightclub in Bulawayo, five skimply dressed sex workers flag down passing vehicles and individuals on foot soliciting for clients.
It’s not business as usual for the sex workers who have been operating at the corner of Robert Mugabe Way and 13th Avenue near the now defunct Club Forty 40. Apart from the usual glances to check on the police officers on patrol, the five sex workers face a new threat to their business.
Their territory is under threat from fellow sex workers who used to operate from bars and nightclubs. Getting an impromptu interview from a sex worker is not easy as they are suspicious of anyone asking questions about their trade.
