Womens Lobby condemn sex workers for shunning skills acquisition training workshop

General News Womens Lobby condemn sex workers for shunning skills acquisition training...

The Zambia National Women Lobby (ZNWL) has condemned the move by some former commercial sex workers under the Thasinta Reform Programme in Mkushi district for shunning skills training in preference for prostitution.

ZNWL Board Chairperson, Beauty Katebe said it is wrong for the some former commercial sex workers to abandon the skills which they were being empowered with and get back into immoral activities.

Speaking in an interview with ZANIS, in Lusaka today, Ms. Katebe said it was unfortunate and irresponsible that a woman can think of getting quick money through prostitution instead of engaging in tangible business ventures to earn a living.

Ms Katebe stated that the sex workers who were being reformed and empowered by Thasinta should consider themselves lucky to have an organisation that can engage them in decent ways of generating income.

She pointed out that the tendency by some sex workers to not willing abandon prostitution and engage in other alternative income generating activities can have negative impact on the efforts being made by both government and stakeholders in combating the HIV/AIDS pandemic.

“These women should know that they have families that look up to them for survival hence they should look after themselves well because many people have died from HIV/AIDS leaving children suffering, “Ms Katebe said.

She has since called on all sex workers to venture into decent business activities and also take advantage of the empowerment programmes being given to them than engaging in illicit behaviours that endanger their lives

  1. What is wrong with this. My wife Rookmini has an MA in psychology from a prestigious university in India, yet, she parcipitate in the sex trade in Bombay. Her earnings are paying for my MBA here in Manchester. Her crients are mainly businessmen from Africa.

    • Leave them alone, is it your nini? Why don’t you train the Johns to stay with their wives?

    • @Baldeo; I wouldn’t love to be your wife’s ‘crient’. But I would advise her to stop wasting money on a soon to be MBA graduate who can’t spell!

  2. What skills are you talking about? We already have the necessary skills to make us earn a living. Gyrating, sucking and blowing, bending, rolling and opening are more than enough skills. We know these things.

  3. Just let them go! Competition out there is fierce with the Zimbabwean now on the scene. They will regret the missed opportunities
