BLANTYRE--There's some pimping going on in Malawi's Nsanje district as boys are allowing their friends to have sex with their girlfriends at K100 a session, The Weekend Times has reported.
This was noted Thursday during the HIV/AIDS Awareness Cinema show by the Pakachere Institute of Health and Development Communication in Collaboration with Assorted Youth Club at Makhanga in Traditional Authority Mlolo in the district.
On single day, according to the paper, a girl can sleep with five males.
“Let’s break the silence. One of the behaviors leading to further spread of HIV in this area is ‘select’ behavior whereby 5 males would sleep with on girl one after another,” the club's chairperson Mabvuto Masala is quoted as saying.
The behavior is fueled by business activities during weekends.
“The train comes every Saturday carrying along business men and women inviting girls to sell groundnuts. Usually when a boy gets a girlfriend among many girls he invites four or more friends to have sex with the girl after himself and he collects K100 from each boy on the spot,” reported the paper Friday.
Apparently, the matter wasn't reported to the district commissioner and other council officials.
Timothy Tallo, Youth Network Chairperson, has since urged youth clubs, traditional leaders, district council and Non Governmental Organizations operating in the district to put their efforts together to ably deal with such conducts.
