'Hookers' appear in court

HARARE - Police have arrested dozens of hookers in an operation they say is aimed to get rid of prostitution in the city.

The operation called “No to Loitering” targeted commercial sex workers operating the red light Avenues area in Harare.

Of the 36 women arrested during the operation, 30 were released after paying admission of guilt fines. Six others appeared in court yesterday.

Eusebia Mugauri, 26, Yolanda Gwatidzo, 29, Tatenda Nhidza, 24, Angel Masosire, 20, Nomatter Chokoto, 23, and Nomsa Sibanda, 19, yesterday appeared in court facing charges of soliciting for prostitution.

The court heard that early this month the six were standing on street corners for the purpose of soliciting for prostitution.

It is alleged that they were luring men to pay for sex that Friday night.

The hookers were later arrested that night by police officers who were conducting an operation to get rid of commercial sex workers. - Staff Writer
