Subject: Increase In The Number Of Commercial Sex Workers

THAT, aware that recent years have witnessed a marked increase in the number of commercial sex workers across the streets of Nairobi City Central Business District (CBD); further aware that Sections 153 and 154 of the Penal Code (Chapter 63 of the laws of Kenya), prohibits both men and women from living wholly or partly on earnings of prostitution or from soliciting; deeply concerned that the enforcement of the provisions of the penal code on prostitution remains lackluster, and that commercial sex workers now undertake their unlawful practice openly within the CBD, this Assembly urges the County Government to move with speed and vigorously enforce the provisions of the law to deter the vice within the CBD.
