K-Talkers Now Rent To Singo Mamas As Somalis Go Back Home..

Speaking to The Nairobian on phone, Daisy Kwamboka who has a ‘business premise’ in Umoja, describes ‘house prostitution’ as a safe way to operate in a city full of cartels and middlemen.

“A friend of mine who lives in Mlolongo advised me to get a house to service my clients. It was the best advice ever,” she said.

Kwamboka says the new arrangement guarantees her security and extra income from the bed, security, bathing, and food in the event of a sleepover.

“Actually, most men prefer the house arrangement to the street or pub parking lots, where women parade their butts in the cold,” she told The Nairobian.

On whether she has clashed with the landlord or caretaker, she said she respects her business and always leaves no trail.

“When my guest is around, I always play it cool and everything is within the four walls: no noise, nothing, it is just business,” she says.

Unlike going to pubs or in town to line up along the streets for customers, deals are sealed over the phone or on dating sites

Just like Kwamboka, Embakasi-based, Gladys Kariuki says the arrangement is ideal, private and does not attract stigma.

She says that unlike going to pubs or in town to line up along the streets for customers, deals are sealed over the phone or on dating sites in the comfort of their homes.

“You don’t have to worry about your reputation because, in your house, there is privacy. You also save yourself the hassle of pimping yourself, and you don’t have to spend money on fare looking for customers. Instead, you eat, clean yourself and wait for the money to walk through the door,” Gladys said.


The mother of one said she has been in the business for over two years. She has also introduced some of her friends into the business and they are now making money as they go to school.

“They are still in college and this kind of arrangement suits them better,” she said.


Kwamboka who makes at least Sh5,000 a night on weekdays and more during weekends, said her clientele are mostly soccer players, musicians, businessmen and foreigners in the country.

“I love Nigerians because they don’t haggle over the price. They will even give you Sh10,000 or more,” she said.

Beneficiaries of this trade, like Godson Uche from Huruma, has nothing but praise for the arrangement.

“At first, the deal was for one night, but we later extended it to a week and it was just too much fun,” he said, praising his hostess for the treat.

Ken Muasya, however, has a different opinion. He feels the arrangement is risky if a woman has more than one lover and all of them contribute towards the payment of her house rent.

“Other rent payers could visit the house and find a stranger and this could lead to deadly confrontation,” he said.

But Gladys says they don’t need ‘sponsors’ to pay their rent since they make enough from the business.

“There is no need of renting a house if you cannot sustain it for the business. That would mean you are making losses and should quit,” she said, adding that the most ideal house is a bedsitter.

Customers like Meshack Oyugi who were used to quickies on the streets are however complaining that all the beautiful women have quit the streets.

“I have been wondering what happened to the curvy women. They are no longer there. What we now have are old, potbellied women,” he lamented.

He claimed the arrangement if not tamed, could destroy marriages.

Sociologist Dr Ken Ouko of the University of Nairobi believes that if a woman invites a strange man to her house, she wants to be in an environment where she is in charge and feels safe.

Ouka adds that sex makes women emotionally connected to a man.

“So many women who are in the sex business try to bury that part of them that wants sex for intimacy, and focus on sex for monetary benefit,” he said.

“You can’t even hold the hand of a strange woman in the streets because she has no connection to you, so she will feel repulsed. The moment they see sex as simply a way to earn a living, they have already crossed the threshold and there is nothing more vital apart from death that they will care about.”

Ouko added that it is easier for a woman to invite a strange man into her house. But it’s also worth noting that the same women are very well protected.

“She could have self-defense mechanism in the house,” Ouko said.

Landlords in Nairobi’s Eastlands are threatening to smoke out single women from their apartments, claiming that their houses have been turned into sex dens.

The landlords who do not want to go public for fear of losing other tenants, have now resorted to vetting potential tenants and turning away single women from their houses.

“We have instructed our agents and caretakers to ensure that female tenants provide proof of marriage or that they have serious boyfriends before they are allowed to live in our apartments,” said one of the landlords.

“Sex business spoils the name of a building and we cannot entertain it here. Women living alone or in twos in one room are not allowed here, said Sammy Mogwasi, a caretaker at Pipeline estate.

Prostitution is a multi-billion business in Kenya alone. The owners of those platforms that masquerade as dating sites must be making money hand over fist without dealing directly with filthy prostitutes and their clients.

It’s the oldest trade

What has this got to do with somalis?

The idiots changed prices of land and housing in Kenya when they invaded us with Pirate Resources.

They are a menace. Their exit has actually exposed the excess availability of rental properties.

same old sinful nature.
nothing extraordinary

"The moment they see sex as simply a way to earn a living, they have already crossed the threshold and there is nothing more vital apart from death that they will care about.”

Prostitution is the only industry which has endurance regardless of a country’s economic status. As people are being retrenched in different industries, the prostitution industry is signing up new ones. They should pay taxes
