Soroti sex workers storm Soroti Central Police Station to rescue a colleague
A group of commercial sex workers from Jumabhai road in Soroti municipality stormed Soroti Central Police Station on Christmas Eve to bail out their colleague. The unidentified commercial sex worker had been picked up for alleged theft of a mobile phone belonging to his colleague.

 

However, her colleagues mobilized Shillings 300,000 to compensate the phone owner, saying they won't allow her to miss her customers during Christmas. They compensated the complainants and secured the release of their colleague.

 

Stephen Ojok, the Officer In-charge of Soroti Central Police Station, says although prostitution is illegal, they can only act after establishing facts on ground.

 

"Yes, we saw them coming to our station and bailed out their colleague who had reportedly stolen a phone but we are still investigating to find out facts where they are operating from so that they are arrested," Ojok said.

 

He said for now they are treating the issue of commercial sex workers as rumors until they find some facts. The decision by the commercial workers to come out openly has raised concern among some residents.  

 

 

Michael Opinya, a resident of Soroti of Nakatunya ward in Soroti Municipality told URN that the action taken by the commercial sex workers shows that Soroti town is steadily becoming a sizzling zone for sex workers.
