She was found writhing in pain by good Samaritans who took her to a hospital before reporting the incident to the police. During the raid on the brothel that was located on 12th Avenue street, Eastleigh, police found sex enhancement drugs, codeine, syringes and Sheesha pots. Early this year, residents of Eastleigh had complained of an increase in the number of commercial sex workers in the estate. Despite its economic growth, Eastleigh has been faced by the bad vice of prostitution thus plunging the communities living in the area into a crisis. According to Sheikh Abdulahi Shariff, a religious leader who is the Imam of the 12th street mosque, the sex workers posed a huge risk of infecting youth with diseases like HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases. Area residents say male clients can get service for as little as Sh200 from the commercial sex workers lining the streets of Eastleigh. The price can triple for high end sex workers operating in brothels that disguise themselves as lodgings.
