Sex workers drawn from Mombasa county have joined Kenyans in condemning acts of sexual violence meted to a female motorist in Nairobi last Friday.
Nkoko Injuu Africa, a CBO that champions the rights of sex workers, through its Executive Director Maryline Laini, said that in solidarity with the female motorist, they are not offering sexual services to bodaboda riders and not using them for transport for the next one week.
“These people are our clients, but from today, no registered sex worker will offer sexual services to any bodaboda rider. If a member is found with a bodaboda client within the period, she will be deregistered,”

Laini noted that denying boda-boda riders sexual services was one way of demanding justice for women who are subjected to sexual assault in public spaces.
“We know this is where we get our basic needs and fend for our families but we are ready to go hungry for this type of violence to come to an end,” Laini said.
