Beatific Gumbwanda in Chiredzi
22 Jan 2017 - CHIREDZI - Disgruntled sex workers have promised to send an ultimatum to Chiredzi Town Council if the local authority fails to comply with their demands to reverse their closure of the popular beer spot.
The sex workers, who said they are now starving, have threatened to go guns blazing against council if the authorities ignore their pleas to restore their source of income.
They said their lives are now very hard and they can no longer send their children to school as the place that used to give them money is no more.
"We will confront council because things are no longer easy for us. We need to eat, pay our rentals and send our kids to school. They should open Chigarapasi with immediate effect," said one lady of the night called Grace.
Landlords with houses surrounding Chigarapasi area are also facing the same fate as their tenants' source of income have been disrupted by the closure of what used to be the largest beer hall in the country.
The bar was shut down following a council resolution against loss-making council-run enterprises and a directive from the Ministry of Local Government to do away with unsustainable ventures.news
