There was drama recently along Central Avenue in the Harare area of Zimbabwe when some prostitutes took advantage of a 15-year-old schoolboy sexually.
Eyewitnesses told Nehanda Radio that the sex workers attracted the attention of onlookers when they took the boy who wore an Ellis Robbins school uniform to the food stall to buy sadza around 10:00am. The food vendors were said to have asked casually the skimpily dressed sex workers who the boy was, and they said he was a friend.
After buying their food, they returned to a rundown flat at the corner of Central Avenue and Eighth street. However, one of the prostitutes went back to the food stall and the female vendors asked her where the student, who is believed to be in Form 2, had gone. She was said to have loudly bragged that he was having a good time with her friend at the flat.

This made the female vendors to get crowds who besiege the flat with the intent of “rescuing” the student. Seeing danger in view, the prostitute ran back to the flat and advised the boy to flee using a sanitary lane. The two prostitutes then came out and confronted the angry crowd, hurling insults at them.
One of the female vendors threw stones at the prostitutes, hitting one of them but they remained defiant.
“As a parent, I am pained by this. This boy’s parents probably think he is at school when these prostitutes are busy spending his pocket money. “We have established that this is not the first time school children are seen at the flat. It seems the brothel is popular with high school students. What a shame!”” said one of the female vendors.
Chai, nawa oh!
