Kenya: International Day to End Violence Against Sex Work

Sex workers activists will today be holding a peaceful procession to mark the International Day to End Violence against Sex Workers. The workers have been complaining against violence inflicted upon them by police, their clients, among others. They have also been calling on the government to legalize sex work arguing that the country could get more revenue through the trade.
