Sex workers in Malawi’s commercial capital, Blantyre have now resorted to putting on Islamic headscarf in a bid to attract new clients a development that has attracted concerns among Muslims community.
Nyasa Times has established that most of them are doing this to attract levellers mostly Asian Muslims and other libidous prominent Malawian Muslim clerics who feel ashamed in dating bareheaded ladies.
The Islamic dressed sex workers are also becoming a hit among non Muslims levellers as they find it as an opportunity to test ‘the hard-nut-to crack’ Muslim chicks.
A bar tender at one of the drinking joints at Kamba in Blantyre confirmed to Nyasa Times that such ladies are mostly targeting ‘amwenye’ or Asians who only patrol the drinking joints to look for prostitutes.
“It’s true we have been seeing some well known prostitutes putting on Islamic dress sometimes just to attract their Asian clients and most of these girls comes from as a far as Chigumula and Mbayani.”
The bar tender says interestingly such Hijab dressed women rarely don’t take alcohol and pretend that they are just escorting friends to the drinking joints when a new client approaches them.
However, this is not a new development to the Moslem community in the country. Radio Islam has been airing panel discussion program condemning such behaviours among ‘women who frequent public places’.
During the program it was discovered the practice is also rife in Mzuzu and Lilongwe cities however not restricted to ladies alone.
It was revealed that even some men putting on skull-cap and nkanjo (long veil) are seen eating pork at drinking joints boozing.
But during the program, the panellists threatened to deal with any prostitute and men patronizing drinking joints in an Islamic gear.
A prominent Muslim clerk has confided in Nyasa Times that they have now launched an underground team to investigate the issue and deal with those who are putting to shame the reputation of Islam religion.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
