via Obert Mpofu building turned into brothel – NewZimbabwe 23/01/2015
MACRO economic Planning and Investment Promotion minister, Obert Mpofu’s Gwanda building has been turned into a brothel with hookers using the premises for sexual encounters with clients.
The building, which previously housed a lodge, is currently unoccupied and security guards manning the building are charging the prostitutes who flood the town’s nightclubs $1 per session.
The facility is located at the corner of Soudan street and Fourth avenue in the town.
Investigations by NewZimbabwe.com established that the building has been turned into a brothel with prostitutes taking turns to use the premises with their clients.
“Most of the prostitutes who use the facility are those who patronize nearby nightclubs; they have been using the facility since last year,” said a security guard from a nearby building.
“The security guards are making a killing as many prostitutes pay them use the premises but I do not think their bosses are aware of this.”
The mining town has since seen a surge in prostitution with young ladies turning to sex work to survive, many of them target the free-spending gold panners.
