It was believed that, to prevent greater evils such as sodomy, masturbation and rape, prostitution was necessary.Even Saint Augustine, who was the bishop of Hippo Regius, present day Annaba, Algeria, in 420AD, held that, “If you expel prostitution from society, you will unsettle everything on account of lusts.” In Kenya, however, prostitution is illegal, despite having been in existence since the colonial period.

But in 1922, after the colonial government imposed a curfew from 6pm to 6am to curb crime, most Watembezi turned to Malaya prostitution, as they could not operate after dark.

It seems to have been a lucrative business, as women from agricultural districts surrounding Nairobi came to the city in droves in the late 1920s to sell their produce but, after a while, stopped going back home because of the money they made from prostitution.

It seems that prostitution in Nairobi was spiralling out of control as, by 1950, prostitutes were moving to the memorial hall in Pumwani after men were banned from going in search of the women.

After Independence, however, prostitution went back to its original home, the streets.
