The untold story about prostitution in Naluwerere can’t leave any smile on your face
When you move around the country most especially during the evening hours, you can’t drive for a distance of 2kilometers without finding a group of halfway dressed Ladies of all colours fronting themselves on streets waiting for “customers” who they are willing to serve sexually.
These ladies don’t mind whom you are walking with be it your parents, wife or your children. They even describe how “sweet” they are and even deeply explain who they will make you feel when you agree to bed with them. Truely speaking, if you are sexually starving, you may find yourself being attracted to taste their “thigh-land” without having any second thought of the number of men and diseases acquired through their activities.
However, if you locate them in their free time most especially during day, these ladies can explain the ups and downs they encounter in this very risky “business”.
Sharon ( Not Real Names) a proud prostitute in Naluwerere revealed that, if life can be turned back, she would have done another job rather than being a ” Forbidden Fruit seller”. With her experience of 21 years in this business, Sharon revealed that the demerits are more weighed than the merits.
” Due to failure of securing a better job after the death of my mom who never introduced me to any man as my Father, life became an enemy of myself and the only standing option was to join prostitution as the only way to earn a living” she explained.
You may think Sharon is of recent, she is an expert with a working experience of 21 years.
“Well, I became a prostitute in 2000 but I can’t tell you that there is something i have achieved rather than giving birth to babies whom I can’t even tell their real fathers and getting infected with all types of deadly diseases.”
She furthermore revealed that she sometimes feels like quitting but having no another option, she keeps on working again and again.
” I have slept with all kind of men, I have seen all kinds of men, but I haven’t achieved anything in this business. Since the outbreak of Covid-19, the money is too scarce and even “customer” reduced on the amount of money they give us. You can’t imagine that now ” LONG” is for 5000/- and you may even take more other three days without getting another customer yet all the bills; rent, eating, lodge fees, and taking care of the kids are on you due to the fact that you can’t tell who fathers them.” She said with tearly eyes.
When we asked her about her age suspecting that maybe it’s the reason as to why she is not making money of recent, she replied
” Let me tell you, though I can’t even imagine the number of men who have so far tasted my “Sumbie”, my sweetness keeps them coming back again and again. Here in Naluwerere it’s me whom clients can sit and wait while I am serving other clients. You can’t even imagine that they even ignore the 15year old girls and decide to bed with me. My experience is worth tasting” she added.
In Naluwerere, it looks like the most vital business is prostitution because there are over 300 prostitutes in the area. The increasing number of “Apple sellers” in the area has also forced landlords to build lodges instead of monthly rental houses. The environment has also attracted young girls to follow suit as it’s no longer a sin in the community.
