Just in: ConCourt outlaws arrest of sex workers

THE Constitutional Court on Wednesday outlawed the arrest of sex workers found loitering the streets “for purposes of prostitution”, saying as long as there were no men who would confirm being approached by the women for sex, the arrests were unconstitutional.

This follows an application filed by nine Harare women, who argued that their arrest in March last year and prosecution on charges of soliciting for prostitution contravened Section 49(1)(b) and that it was a denial of their  fundamental right to the protection of the law as guaranteed by Section 56(1) of the same charter.

Deputy Chief Justice Luke Malaba read the order which was granted by consent.

Culture inokwana pese matongerwe enyika, kurarama uye kutaura kwedu, plz control this issue.

  12. i think the ruling is fair, considering the current economic hardship, the least that the government can do is to give its people freedom. i think the same shld be done in the kombi sector

  13. this ruling is most welcome and was long overdue. not only was zrp( or is it the state?) benefitting from fines unduly, corrupt police officers were benefiting both in cash and in kind. i suggest ministry of womens affairs and women activists immediately educate the affected women on their just unveiled rights . police officers had abandoned their core business of going after real criminals and had eagerly chose to chase after the hapless girls
