Sex prices slashed

University students working as sex workers in Uganda have slashed their sex prices by half to woo clients and cope with Covid-19.

The female students mostly from Makerere university, YMCA, Kampala international university, Nkumba and Mukono operate from a brothel located in Uganda’s central district of Wakiso.

The brothel is called Texas and is located in Gayaza parish, about 16 kilometers from the country’s capital Kampala.

Over 200 students up for grabs

According to Chris Muga, who stays near the brothel, there are about 200 university students operating from the brothel.

Mr. Muga says after Uganda went into lockdown and universities were closed due to Covid-19 some female university students who come from far away decided to venture into sex work to fend for themselves.

Covid-19 to blame

One of the students working as a sex worker who sought anonymity said tough times brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic had forced them to reduce their sex prices in order to attract more clients.

‘We used to ask for 10,000 shillings as the standard fee per round of sex before Covid-19 struck but now we have slashed it to 5000. We have done so in order to attract more customers” she said.

”We started doing this 5 days ago and already the results are positive. Now more men come to get our services because the price is affordable by most of them.”
