On her retirement, the 49-year-old received a parcel of land, According to Sarah Mutero, she has turned down many marriage proposals from suitors she had given excellent service.
A 49-year-old Kenyan woman named Sarah Mutero, has decided to retire from prostitution after servicing 28,000 men in 23 years.
After calling it quits, Mutero received a parcel of land worth Sh120,000 in Makuyu, Murang’a County. Some well-wishers have also promised to pool funds to build her a house after she ditched the trade.
Stanley Ngara aka King of Condoms of LVCT- and who is spearheading a programme to retire cex workers in a humane way said cex workers have played an important role in the fight against HIV/Aids.
“Men will seek cex in all ways, but when it comes to cex workers it is a different game. They don’t accept intercourse without condoms however much men insist to pay more for unprotected cex. Society has a negative perception of cex workers but in reality, they are in the front line in prevention of cexually transmitted diseases,” said Ngara.
He added; “Their clients are men in other relationships
— and from surveys, seven out of 10 clients ask for unprotected cex. Out of these seven, five are willing to pay handsomely. If they accept such deals you can imagine how HIV/Aids can spread. We must appreciate them with a retirement package”.
For 23 years Mutero had been a cex worker, having serviced hundreds of men at her hometown of Embu, Nairobi city centre and in Majengo area.
She claims she would service 20 or more men in a day in her younger years. But as age set in, hard economic times and stiff competition she could manage four customers daily. This means an average of 100 per month and for 23 years she has taken care of over 28,000 men.

“It is not an easy thing to satisfying such a big number of men, some being ruthless, yet we end up poor. We earn peanuts that we can’t even save. Everything I have earned in servicing needy men went to clothes, shelter and food for my children as well as education,” she said.
In cex business, pricing is determined by standards and location. In villages, Majengo and places like that, a session popularly called “shot” goes for Sh100. In the city centre it costs Sh200 and higher in upmarket areas.
In Majengo, cex workers rent the mud houses for Sh4,500 per month and have to close business at 11pm. She is among sellers who spent the night there while others with young children or those whose husbands are not aware what they do for living go home early.
In the cex business, she says, some morals are thrown out of the window if one is to make good money.
“If a shot is Sh100 how many men do you have to sleep with to make ends meet? Many. That is why we don’t disregard customers as far as they can pay and are above 18 years. Though I am old, young men prefer me because we treat them well, and if they are beginners we show them how to put on condoms and do enjoyable cex. My clients are aged between 18 and 35 years,” she revealed.
Mutero is among the old cex workers in the city and has decided to retire and set a precedent for her workmates, some in their 60s.
“Young women are taking over. I also find it weird when some customers we meet tell me I served them five or ten years ago. They wonder how I am still alive and in the business. I have turned down many asking to marry me, especially after I give them delightful cex,” she said.
She added; “I want to retire and settle down quietly. I am not addicted to a point I will retreat to the streets. No, I just want quiet life with my children and I am not interested in getting a husband.”
The mother of two sons jumped into prostitution aged 17 years in 1995 after a stranger impregnated her and vanished. His first-born is a form-four leaver while his second son is in form four but struggling with school fees.
“They respect me and I suspect they know I am a cex worker. They have prayed that I shift from what I am doing. I wish my children do not get into this business or seek cex from prostitutes,” she hopes.
