At 64, Kenyan oldest prostitute, Rosemary Johns has revealed she has slept with 5000 men to make ends meet and raise her children.
According to her she has been practising prostitution for over two decades. She opined in an interview that in 1984 when a friend told her how well-paying flesh peddling was. She has never looked back.
She said that: “I got married at 16, but after some time in marriage, my husband started neglecting us after I gave birth to five children,” recalls the now mother of eight (two have since died and the rest are adults in Tanzania).
“I could have had 10 children were it not for two miscarriages,” reveals Rosemary who parted ways with her husband and became a barmaid in Musoma, Tanzania, before relocating to Nairobi where “I joined some women along Digo Road where we would wait for clients day and night and charged Sh5 for our services.”
“Many things have changed in the last 30 years as “nowadays I see young girls joining us here and within days, they would be driving their own vehicles or running businesses. Unfortunately, some of them steal from customers. They make quick money and invest well, but compared to years back, they are now too extreme even in their dressing. We used to dress nicely without exposing our breasts or butts to attract men,” she stated.
She added that, It has been a long journey and also revealed that she have slept with more than 5,000 men in more than 20 years.
Assuming she slept with a man, a day, it will take her 14 years to achieve this magnanimous feat.
On the other hand, if she did five men a day it will take her only three years to meet this amazing career achievement.
Finally, if she could stand 10 men daily then she accomplished this in 15 months.
