A group of Mombasa sex workers has notified their clients that they will be working on August 9.
Maryline Laini, the Executive director of Nkoko Injuu Africa, a non-governmental organization that champions the rights of sex workers across the coast region said that even though they would vote they had resolved to work on that day.
Laini who said the workers had resolved to vote for leaders who would improve their lives, further stated that over 3000 women under the organization were registered voters and they had undergone civil education on the need of voting.
She further stated that they were expecting to reap huge since potential clients would be free after voting.
“We have high hopes that social joints will still be operating to enable us entertain and provide services to our clients awaiting the outcome of the election,” she added.
