Malawi sex workers angered with government’s decision to close churches, planning ‘Churches Must Open’ demos

Sex workers in Malawi have expressed their dissatisfaction with government over decision to ban churches amid Covid-19 partial lock-down. Lucy Mtajili, chairperson for Lilongwe

Sex Workers told Akometsi that the banning of religion gatherings will have a serious mental impact on the sex workers who go to church every Sunday to thank God for their blossoming business, pray for protection and repent for some of the sins they commit while on duty.

“Its very unfair to ban the only place we go apart from bars. We go through a lot and when we seek God from churches, we are greatly relieved to continue entertaining Malawians. We are in the business of offering pleasure to people including cabinet ministers and top government officials, our job is a serious one because we deal with an erect person. Spiritual orientation helps us stay in line and sex workers pray the most than everyone you can think of,” she said.

The Chairperson has asked government to reconsider the decision of face them in the streets.

“Government should do the right thing or face us in the streets. We will demonstrate against this decision until churches reopen. We need God to heal this nation,” she explained.

Mtajili has since asked Pastors to involve them should there be other plans on how they intend to challenge government to reopen churches as soon as possible.
