Prostitution is one of the oldest trades known to mankind, dating back to the existence of civilisation.
Women and, with the advancement of years, men, have lined dimly lit street corners, luring clients for centuries.
During that era, there were two types of prostitutes: Watembezi and Malaya.
The first, named from the Kiswahili verb for ‘to walk’, was when prostitutes would solicit men in any public place.
It was believed that, to prevent greater evils such as sodomy, masturbation and rape, prostitution was necessary.
Even Saint Augustine, who was the bishop of Hippo Regius, present day Annaba, Algeria, in 420AD, held that, “If you expel prostitution from society, you will unsettle everything on account of lusts.” In Kenya, however, prostitution is illegal, despite having been in existence since the colonial period.
