A commercial sex worker is frequently visiting the ZESA Head Office in Harare demanding to meet a senior ZESA employee claiming that she is owed over US$70 for her services.
Elizabeth Mutetwa told H-Metro that the ZESA employee, Shepherd Mandizvidza, has moved out of his rented flat in the Avenues area to an unknown place.
She said she decided to look for him at his workplace after he relocated and blocked her calls. Elizabeth said:
I did not want to expose him at his workplace but his reason for blocking my calls forced me to look for him at his ZESA office.
He hooked me from the streets and we had quality time at his rented flat in the Avenues area before he relocated.
He only paid me US$30 promising to pay the balance of US$70 but is now refusing to entertain me.
I will not stop visiting his workplace until I receive my money.
He threatened to deal with me but I do not mind. Chero akandiuraya hazvina basa ini ndirikuda mari yangu chete (even if he kills me I don’t care. All that I want is my money).
Meanwhile, Mandizvidza told H-Metro that Elizabeth is trying to extort him.
He said he was not aware that Elizabeth was one of the Avenues commercial sex workers when he accommodated her. Said Mandizvidza:
Elizabeth has become a nuisance to me and is extorting me because I paid her all her money.
I was not aware that she is a sex worker.
Reports suggest that some men who would have engaged sex workers experience blackmail from the call girls.
The sex workers will threaten their clients in order to keep receiving payments from them.
