Zvishavane Town Council Runs Brothel To Supplement Revenue

Zvishavane Town Council Runs Brothel To Supplement Revenue

Zvishavane Town Council is running a brothel with council officials saying it is a way of raising funds as 80% of residents are not paying rates.

This came out during Minister of State for Provincial Affairs and Devolution for Midlands, Larry Mavima’s business tour of the town on Wednesday.

Mavima described Zvishavane Town Council as shameful and the worst run local authority in Midlands Province.

This comes as top council officials including town secretary Tinoda Mukutu are on suspension on corruption charges.

The sex workers pay US$30 a day to the local authority’s security department so that they can bring in their clients day and night.

Mavima ordered that the sex workers to be removed with immediate effect, describing the situation as “depressing”. He said:

This visit is depressing, Zvishavane has the worst management for any local authority. It is not only embarrassing but shameful and unacceptable that a local authority can resort to brothels as a way of fundraising. That brothel should be closed immediately.

Meanwhile, Mandava has 500 people who are sharing public toilets and bathrooms.

PROSTITUTION IS ONE OF THE OLDEST PROFESSIONS IN THE WORLD. CAMARADA LARRY MAVIMA IS RIGHT TO TRY AND ERADICATE IT FROM THE FACE OF ZVISHAVANE.

BUT LET ME TELL CAMARADA LARRY MAVIMA, AB INITIO, THAT HE IS FIGHTING A BATTLE HE WILL LOSE. THIS PROFESSION HAS BEEN FOUGHT FROM THE TIMES IN THE BIBLE BUT ALL KINGDOMS HAVE FAILED TILL TODAY.

WHILE MINISTER WAS REBUKING ZVISHAVANE TOWN COUNCIL FOR OPERATING A BROTHEL, MUNICIPALITIES IN BIG CITIES LIKE HARARE, BULAWAYO, GWERU, MASVINGO AND MUTARE ARE THRIVING ON BROTHELS.

BIG BUSINESSES ARE CLINCHED IN BROTHELS IN OUR TOURIST RESORTS LIKE VICTORIA FALLS, KARIBA AND NYANGA MOUNTAINS.

THE CRUST OF MATTER IN ZVISHAVANE IS CORRUPTION. THE MINISTER PAID A VISIT TO ZVISHAVANE TO INVESTIGATE CORRUPT TENDENCIES BY SENIOR ZVISHAVANE TOWN COUNCIL. BROTHELS ARE VICTIMS IN CROSSFIRE.

I URGE THE MINISTER TO PROCEED WITH VENOM TO GET RID OF CORRUPTION IN ZVISHAVANE.

AS I HAVE ALREADY POINTED OUT THAT BROTHELS ARE ALSO THRIVING IN BIG CITIES, HE SHOULD NOW PROCEED TO GWERU. WHAT THE MINISTER DID IN ZVISHAVANE IS WORK IN PROGRESS. HE SHOULD CLEAN UP THE WHOLE OF MIDLANDS PROVINCE AND NOT JUST A CORNER OF IT.

BUT IN CONCLUSION MINISTER MAVIMA IS FIGHTING A BATTLE HE WILL LOSE.

YOURS FAITHFULLY

Minister Mavhima is hypocritical & has a false sense of morality. The oldest priffession is here to stay. Lodges & hotels are essentially dignified brothels. Sex work, adultery, fornication & marital infidelity also happens in hotels. Shutting down brothels will not make sex work disappear. Prostitution goes underground & happens in unsafe & unsanitary places. Zvishavane Town council is correct. Revenue from sex work should be collected & safe sexual reproductive health practices such as condom use, STI treatment, HIV testing & adherence to ARVs must be inculcated in the sex workers. How is corruption better than honest transactional sex which benefits the town council? Zvishavane has lots of Mashurugwi, mine workers & korokozas. They are a hard to reach key population, hence the National Aids Council & Zvishavane Town Council should work together to ensure safe sexual practices in such brothels.

I agree with you, especially the health aspect perspective, where there then can be established an entry point into the commercial sex zones to build the capacity of those who practice it around safe sex and broader range of related health care matters ie vct, condom use, adherence etc

Hanty it is a form of revenue collection 👻 I see no problem with that, some developed countries actually have a licence fee if you want to be a sex worker...saka murikuda kuty vanhu vasvirirane mumasango kuty mapurisa awane chioko muhomwe ...Viva Zvishawane Council ndirikuuya ikoko in the next coming few weeks
