Even during the state of emergency, at dusk, the sex workers come out parading as they search for clients
It is risky but they say they are aware of the disease and are taking preventive measures
“We wash our hands with soap and water and we always wear a mask.
While the Province has already confirmed cases of the new Coronavirus, two of them are sex workers – a Mozambican and a foreigner
“Right now our business is not good because of the Coronavirus, all the stands are closed, so these men don’t come here.
The mayor of Tete, César de Carvalho, is aware of the problem combined with illegal activity and so many foreign prostitutes.
“We’re going to have to get started all together, the immigration services, the police, and the municipality to control foreign women but it is not easy, it is not something that begins today and will end tomorrow.
Besides the city of Tete, where the activity also takes place in broad daylight, the same business buzzes in the city of Moatize which is 21 kilometers from the provincial capital.
