Sex workers banned from Othaya as tea farmers expect bonuses
Othaya legislator Mary Wambui has warned sex workers against flocking to the constituency as the tea bonus is set to be released.
Wambui urged tea farmers not to allow twilight girls to reap their hard-earned money.
Most of the Othaya population are tea farmers who deliver their tea at Gathuthi, Iriaini, Gitugi and Chinga tea factories.
The Sh63.6 billion was announced by the Kenya Tea Development Agency last week.
The final payments for the tea farmers will be released in a few weeks.
“Those renting rooms in Othaya town and wearing skinny skirts are not welcomed here. Let the families celebrate their money in peace,” the MP said.
Wambui advised men to be wary of the women, saying they risk contracting diseases like HIV-Aids.
She urged men to be accompanied with their wives when withdrawing the money.
Wambui spoke to journalists at the PCEA Church in Othaya town on Thursday.
She attended the burial ceremony of Nderitu Macharia, 77, who was local businessman.
