Sex Tourism and Kenya's Children - Report Disputed

Unicef researchers should have followed the counting with focused observations, as well as a questionnaire that gathered information on the behaviour of the target population group in a study used to estimate the number of child sex workers in the northeast town of Mtwapa, according to Albert Manyuchi, a social scientist at the University of the Witwatersrand. This follows reports claiming that over 10,000 children in Mtwapa were involved in the sex trade.
