Sex Workers: no comment …

The fact remains that, if a private individual needs, for example, an “askari”, a guardian who, if seen by thieves, if he gives it to his feet, he will have to pay KES 10107.20 a month for an agency, but the worker will collect just over half ! Compensation that you would receive from being hired by a private individual.
