Twenty three female s.e.x workers and seven of their male clients were Monday evening arrested at two brothels in Emali, Makueni County, Nzaui OCPD, Josiah Okumu, says.

Okumu said 14 people (13 female s.e.x workers and a male client) were found in Kilungu lodging, whereas 16 other persons (ten s.e.x workers and six men) were found at a lodging known as Under 18.

All the 30 are said to have breached 7pm-5am curfew directive and social distancing guidelines.

“We found the women dressed in skimpy, revealing clothes,” Okumu told K24 Digital.

The female suspects will be quarantined at their own cost at Mulala Girls’ High School and the male suspects will be placed under mandatory isolation at Matiliku Boys’ High School, also at their own cost, said Okumu.

“I want to tell all Nzaui Sub-County residents that if you’ll be found in a lodging after 7pm, we shall presume you are a COVID-19 carrier, and, we shall, therefore, put you under mandatory quarantine at your own cost,” said the area police boss.

Four other people, who were in a bar known as Kanini Kaseo Bar in Emali, were arrested for convening in a social joint contrary to Government’s anti-COVID-19 directives.

The four comprised two waitresses and two male customers, who will also be quarantined at their own expense.
