In what will come across as a really shocking development, a young girl who is just 15, has admitted to mothering up to three kids.
A 15-year-old Zimbabwean hooker from Hopley has narrated her ordeals which include being deliberately infected with s*xually transmitted diseases by cruel clients.
According to H-Metro, the hooker, whose name has been withheld as she is still a minor, said she joined the world’s oldest profession last year because of numerous challenges.
“I started being a hooker last year in November. And I decided to be a hooker because of the difficulties of life, like even failing to feed myself and also failing to get any food and a place to stay.
“I have so many challenges because I’m an orphan.
“My parents died when I was still in Form 2 that’s when I dropped out of school and started doing this.
During the interview, she looked intoxicated as she expressed herself with a resigned tone of voice.
She also said the risks they face have led to her plea for help so that she can at least leave prostitution as it continues to be more and more dangerous.
“It’s really a difficult life that we live because you get to seek medication many times in your life because the health risks are real.”
Asked how many men she has slept with ever since she started prostitution last year, the girl said “aaah handitorina kana number yacho, vakawandisa.”
This reporter went on to further ask her how much she charges for each s*x session and she said “haa I charge US$1.”
“The men will come and tell you that that’s the money they have.
“I usually operate in bars around here in Hopley but I also go to town, to several bars in a bid to get other clients who may pay more.”
Without giving proof or saying more, the hooker claimed to have three kids saying that her youngest is six months old.
Under Zimbabwean law, s*x with a minor is a crime as one will face allegations of contravening Section 70 of the Criminal Law Codification and Reform Act Chapter 9:23.
And indeed this hooker is a minor but the challenge is that she will not make a complaint as this is her chosen profession.
And one hopes that the pledge made by philanthropist Dr Killer Zivhu through his foundation will come to fruition so that he can help the self confessed hookers especially this child, who is a mere 15 year old.
