ZIMBABWEAN sex workers have invaded the country masquerading as cross-border traders selling a variety of merchandise.

At night, however, the women shift from being respectable business persons to sex workers parading in the streets of Lusaka townships and patronising lodges and guest houses.

The Zimbabwean sex workers have particularly found a haven in Chawama and Kuku townships where they lodge at two guest houses commonly known as Katete and Bulawayo.

Residents of the two townships said men from Chawama, Kuku and other parts of Lusaka had been flocking to these guest houses in a bid to have a good time with the Zimbabwean sex workers.

Many of these sex workers prefer Chawama which for them has become more like a gold mine because men there prefer the Zimbabwean prostitutes to their Zambian counterparts.

A Zambian sex worker, Judith Mwila of Chawama, who has been in the business for years, said many men no longer went for locals, claiming that Zimbabwean sex workers were ‘more active and sweet in bed’.

Ms Mwila said the other unfortunate thing was that the Zambian sex workers had lost business to their Zimbabwean counterparts who had proved to be extremely cheap.

An undercover survey by the Sunday Times found that while Zambian sex workers were charging at least K50 per session, Zimbabweans were charging as low as K15.

Incidentally, this illicit business is not only conducted at the so-called Katete and Bulawayo lodges but exists in other townships as well such as Chibolya, Kanyama, Garden and Chaisa.

Zimbabwean sex workers can be found in these other townships selling their bodies cheaply, and this has compelled more and more Zambian men to prefer them to their Zambian counterparts.

Ms Mwila called on the law-enforcement officers to ensure that foreign female visitors in particular had legal documentation because many of these were sex workers were making the lives of Zambian prostitutes difficult by pushing them out of ‘business’.

“I am urging the Immigration Department to move in and check if these people have legal documents to be in the country because they are making our lives hard,” Ms Mwila said.

Another resident, Henry Ngoma, called on Lusaka City Council to move in and close ‘Katete’ and ‘Bulawayo’ lodges in particular, which he
said had been turned into brothels similar to what previously were
known as ‘midadadada’.

Mr Ngoma said the issue was getting out of hand because even young men were flocking to the two brothels because there services were affordable.
“It is outrageous because boys are also flocking to these brothels and paying for cheap sex,” Mr Ngoma said.

“I am hereby urging the council and other relevant authorities to ensure that they close them down.”

Immigration public relations manager Namati Nshinka said some of these women may have valid documents although they ended up doing something else.

The Immigration Department had in the recent past conducted operations to remove sex workers from Chawama.

Mr Nshinka said the department would soon carry out another raid and clear sex workers that might have returned to the township.

He was aware of sex workers that were operating at ‘Katete’ and ‘Bulawayo’ and warned the owners of the two places that they risked being closed down.

“We are going to carry out an operation to remove and deport all the sex workers operating at the named brothels,” he said.

  1. Kikikikiki but kwena. The good part of the zim girls is they know how to do it. They are best in the region. The issue of sex business is however unfortunate.

    • @PF3:0 UPND; Typical Zambian mentality. If it’s Zambian, it must be bad. A prostitute is a prostitute is a prostitute! You get what you pay for. If you want a discount, why should a w.hore break her back for your 2 sec performance? And all of you here complaining about Zambian W.hores being dirty, you pick them muma komboni. Cheapest prostitues you could ever find. They have be to be drunk just to put up with your cheap, slobby, drunken sweaty a$$ and disease ridden pen.is! If you ask me it’s a pot, cattle kind of situation here!

  2. Every country has prostitutes from other countries… not too long ago Zambian prostitutes were flocking to Zimbabwe no its just the other way round..

    Prostitution in Israel ( HOLY LAND) has been dominated by Russians since the mass immigration from the former Soviet Union in the 1990s.

    • Very true. Even in Malawi, there are 2 townships in Blantyre and Lilongwe where Zambian cross border traders sell sex in the night. In fact one Zambian journalist was found selling her sex too.
      The fact is Zambian women are even wilder, more indecent and do 3 somes when abroad but pretend to be better behaved when they come back to Zambia!
      The diff between Zim and Zambian sex workers is that Zim prostitutes are controlled, better behaved and know what they are doing BUT Zambians lose their heads altogether by drinking too much as well.

  3. Prostitution in (HOLY-LAND) Israel is legal since ancient times.

    The sex trade in Israel generates up to $500 million in revenue a year.

    1,000 Russian prostitutes working in Israel, mostly in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem

  4. Hehehehehehe. Zambian prostitutes have too many overheads that’s why the are expensive. And now it seems they are rubbish in bed too. Oh the agony!

    • Iwe chi count down wansekesha sana. You also come back with change for manzi after pounding three zims from a K50 demanded by dirty stinking zeds.
      Zambian sex workers stink with stds and generally dirty. And always drunk. Some people don’t drink and are easily turned away by the dirt and beer smells. That is why even young boys are all after clean and caring zim prostitutes.
      Do not be jealousy just improve services and be clean not careless as you regard yourselves as outcasts and abornomal.

  6. The immigration department should issue these prostitutes with work permits and allow them to do their business legally.Deporting them is not a solution!

  7. Zambian sex workers do not complain.
    – Be clean and sober.
    – Reduce charges.
    – Visit health centre services for medical check ups to avoid stinking std smells.
    – Improve customer care services.
    Sex services help a lot of people. Sex relieves and tones down the muscles of the human body.
    Visitors, unmarried and married men with wives sick, on period and not around all need the services of clean and sober sex workers. Including those with tasteless wives and those wishing a different taste.
    All men that know the taste of sex need sex workers’s services.
    Prostitution will never end until the end of the world or God’s intervention.
    So sex providers must be encouraged to have medical check ups regulary. And must always be clean and sober.

  8. …..all I can see from this article is a FREE ADVERT for the Zim expatriate sex workers and the katete and Bulawayo lodges….chief Mpezeni was once quoted ..’..AIDS will be difficult to contend with….because inankala pachakundya…’…unless we adopt laws like in some Arab countries, we are fighting a loosing battle….not long ago this very site carried an article with pictures of police vans filled with apprehended suspected Zim sex workers….a year later it seems that number has trebled…the problem is that the police and immigration officers find solace from the very places at a cheap, affordable cost with ultimate rewarding services…at times they just flash their IDs and get it for free…

    • …on preference of Zim whores to Zedians….it is just a myth which is everywhere….you go to RSA they prefer Zims, Mozambicans, tswanas, namibs and Zedians to their very own….go to Tanzania they prefer Malawians and Zedians…go to UK, they prefer blacks…when you are in Zim..Zedians sell more than their Zim counterparts…. sexually, husbands prefer whores to their wives….reminds me of a story one lady set up her husband using her friend..when the husband proposed to the friend, the friend and the wife arranged such that the wife got into the friend’s bed, with lights off the husband got onto business sobbing about praising the ‘friend’ that she was sweeter than his wife without realising he was pounding the very wife….so, sex is just a mind game…

    • Have you heard anyone attacking Zimbabweans in Zambia? Ntuli. There is no comparison. We love prostitutes as you can see from most of the posts hahahah. They are essential to our existence as Zambians. Whether the prostitute is Zed, Zim or RSA doesn’t matter to us despite what some people are posting. What matters is the quality of service So don’t compare your killing innocent people and burning them alive to our healthy debate on cross border prostitution here.

  12. Preference for Zimbabwean women over the Zambians has been there for along time. When we were growing up as small boys we used to hear that bashi chite balipondoka balisanga umutebele. Matebele (light in complexion with curvy hips) caused havoc at one point in Zambia.

  13. I am shocked by peoples knowledge of the sex business, you have the locations, the charges, the different skills of Zimbabweans and Zambians etc. I for one know nothing about this trade hahahahaha!! some people here doing marketing for the Zim prostitutes. K15 all round, not every round is reasonable, everyone can afford apart from those of us who don’t use these necessary services. The world’s oldest profession for sure.
