One on One with Nairobi ‘Pimp’

 

What do you do?

I am a sex worker and I pimp girls. A guy comes to me, he wants a girl, I have approximately 22 girls, I call one of them and I negotiate the payment. Out of the negotiations I get a commission but it will only depend on how much the girl is getting.

How did you start sex work?

Back in 2010 I was fired from my job. I really tarmacked looking for a job in Nairobi and I didn’t get one. I decided to go to Simmers Pub and started sex work. I have been in the industry for six years. It’s not necessarily that you work in an office, we can’t all fit there. We have to disperse one way or the other.

Since its inception back in 1998, Bar Hostess Empowerment & Support Programme (BHESP) biggest projects has been on HIV prevention among female sex workers in Kenya.

HIV prevention takes over 60% of BHESP’s annual budget. Despite the massive investment channeled towards HIV prevention, BHESP realized that it cannot respond to challenges facing sex workers by offering HIV preventions services alone.
