By Wesley Ngwenya Because of the overwhelming email responses I got from the earlier published article on called “Zambia: Night Life and Prostitution in Lusaka” I feel obliged to give the readers just one story from the book in progress.
First time I met Cindy (not her real name) was in the Northmead area.
We had a short conversation after I declined her request to buy her a drink. She joked with me about having given me a chance the last time we met.
My usual reply to the girls when they ask me to buy them a drink is, “Why should I buy you a drink? Some will respond by saying, “You don’t buy drinks to girls who ask you? Couple of years later, I met her at the Makeni Casino. She immediately recognized me but was too busy to talk to me since she was with the company of some Asian men. I talked to her about my mission and that I will tell her story without ever using her real name.
” This then leads to a conversation and before you know it we are talking about many other things. She reluctantly agreed and we arranged to meet a week later.
Cindy lives in the upper middle class neighborhood of Ibex Hill on the East Side of Lusaka.
She moved in with her grandparents after she completed school a couple of years earlier.
Although she never seemed to have invested much time in job searching she blames the “Zambian System” for failing to provide jobs for people like her. It downed on her that nigh that, as a girl, she possessed certain powers that she could use to manipulate men.
Cindy speaks very good English and has very good high school grades. She loved the attention she got from this man and the other men in the nightclub. The man took them home that night after exchanging numbers.
It all started one night when Cindy and her cousin stayed out late at a drinking place. Later in the week she met up with him and things escalated from there onwards.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
