Kwekwe Becoming A Mini Sodom & Gommora!

Kwekwe Becoming A Mini Sodom & Gommora!

NAC co-ordinator for Kwekwe urban, Ms Fadzai Mudondo said there was a need to engage them so that they do not contract tlof tlof transmitted infections and suffer in silence.

She made the remarks while speaking during a stakeholder meeting in Kwekwe recently.

We have noticed a significant increase in the number of male tlof tlof workers, although they are not willing to open up. Most of them are bisexual, and some are gay, while some prefer women only.

We started engaging some of them with the hope of creating peer educators so that they could get access to our services and even medical services.

Unfortunately, we are not getting a positive response, but we will continue engaging them.

The male tlof tlof workers usually target elderly tlof tlof-starved women as well as widowed women.

Ms Mudondo said their female counterparts are forthcoming, and by the third quarter of 2022, about 64 female tlof tlof workers were accessing pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) ) which can reduce one’s chance of getting HIV from tlof tlof or injection drug use.

Regarding the HIV/AIDS situation in Kwekwe, Ms Mudondo said there was a decline in both prevalence and incidence rates.

Mining towns and their floating population of artisanal miners tend to have higher rates and attract more commercial tlof tlof workers.

The Midlands province is rich in mineral resources, a situation that has seen an influx of artisanal miners who are high spenders thereby attracting the attention of commercial tlof tlof workers.

According to NAC, Midlands has an estimated 7 000 commercial tlof tlof workers with about 2 500 based in Shurugwi, although the cities of Gweru and Kwekwe attract large numbers.
