The Alliance leader however said some promises are not fulfilled and that politicians are not using the right channels to reach the sex workers.
“If it really happens, it is of beneficial to us, but in most of cases, politicians make roadside declarations without engaging us through existing structures and what they want to do,” Fellister was quoted
At the same time she claimed that all the 380,000 sex worker have identity cards and registered as voters thus they are now being hunted ahead of 2022.
“We have many numbers and they know that. The only problem is that they are not using the right channels; they should meet us and table their proposals,” she said.
