Maku­tano Kyumbi is a town, along Mom­basa road, exact­ly at the Machakos turnoff well known for pros­ti­tu­tion which comes with a large num­ber of long-dis­tance truck dri­vers who spend their nights there.

The town which looks dor­mant at day­time accom­mo­dates over 400 trucks parked each night trans­lat­ing to over 1200 per­sons who encom­pass dri­vers and their con­duc­tors.

Cathy Nzisa, a mid­dle-aged lady with over 5 years expe­ri­ence lament­ed that the busi­ness is get­ting worse with young entrants attract­ing the dri­vers for as low as Sh100 ser­vice charge per hour.

Nzisa said the busi­ness used to bring hand­some income prob­a­bly on week­ends if you are lucky to lay five men each at Sh300 or Sh500 per hour accord­ing to the agree­ment.

Rates vary depend­ing on the man. If he is will­ing to use a con­dom it remains at below Sh500 and if he is for ‘nya­ma kwa nya­ma’ [with­out a con­dom], then the charges start from Sh1,000 and above for an hour only with con­di­tions that ‘haku­na kumwa­ga ndani’ [no ejac­u­lat­ing inside her],” she said.

Martha revealed that at times she finds it hard to stand some men espe­cial­ly the Con­golese due to their endowed man­hood and sev­er­al­ly she escapes from the lodg­ing for her safe­ty, though she added that a bad night hav­ing laid around 4 men she goes home with clean Sh1,500.

I don’t have any shame doing this job. To me, it is like a pro­fes­sion. I start­ed after com­plet­ing form four and due to lack of fees and my moth­er was a wid­ow and I was the third born, I decid­ed to help my fam­i­ly that I con­tribute in fees paid for my younger sib­lings after hav­ing worked for 4 years,” Martha nar­rat­ed.

The girl who has been in the trade since 2012 added that “Though the mar­ket has been severe­ly intrud­ed by girls from oth­er regions espe­cial­ly Kisumu, Luhya land and Kikuyus not for­get­ting of Ugan­da we are try­ing to up our game.”

Cathy adds that putting ‘mchele’ in client’s drinks are affect­ing busi­ness as men are now tak­ing pre­cau­tions.
