Areas within the city where commercial sex workers freely operate from without even fearing the long hands of the law can now be revealed.

Park Road is one of the streets where the commercial sex workers ply their trade both during the day and at night.

So desperate are the prostitutes who operate in the area that fight often break out amongst them whenever they spot a potential client approaching.

A spot check by Nairobi News on Friday night revealed how the commercial sex workers don’t even fear police officers.

“The officers never arrest them despite the fact that they engage in illegal business,” said James Kamau a guard along the street.

DECENT LIVING

Our investigations also revealed that some of the commercial sex workers are as old as 50 years.

Dressed in a mini-dress that barely reaches her knees, is Jane 52, who has been in this business for decades now.

“I started working at a bar along this road before it was closed down and I had to go on with my life. That’s how I ended up here,” she told Nairobi News.

She confessed that whereas hers is a dirty job, she been earning a decent living which has hooked her to the trade of flesh.

Ms Jane said that she makes over Sh 1,000 per night which for is not bad.

As we went about undercover beat some of the sex workers even attempted to entice us by announcing reduced prices for their services.

“Hey, come over we can negotiate on the price today am in moods,” one of them shouts at us.

K-STREET

At Ronald Ngara, just after the Riverside bus terminus, the situation is not different. Here commercial sex workers grab men by the shirts.

Men who seem to be aware of their habits are even forced to use the other side of the road.

“They are always unruly and we wonder why the police are not taking action against them yet they usually pass through here,” said Joshua Njihia, who sells peanuts along Ronald Ngara stretch.

The infamous Koinange Street remains a hot spot for commercial sex workers but the closure of joints along the street famously known as K-Street, has forced most of them to move to other areas.

Parliament Road is also a favourite for commercials sex workers who consider themselves classy and different from those who operate from down town Nairobi.

In a press statement, the IEBC said that conducting the by-elections would involve party nominations and campaigns, which would inevitably involve human contact, thereby exposing the public to the dangers of contracting the new coronavirus.

It said the commission is mandated to adhere to the government’s directive for the observance of social distancing and the 5 am to 7 pm curfew.

Prevention is always better than cure and that’s why the best way to avoid the stretch marks after pregnancy, is to prevent them frfom occuring, and prep early on.

With enough preparation, you have a higher chance of preventing stretch marks or reducing their appearance from pregnancy.

Here are simple tips on how you can avoid stretch marks during pregnancy.

  1. Keep your weight in check

Stretchmarks appear whenever there is rapid weight gain or weight loss. And during a pregnancy, there is usually a lot of weight gain in many women, which results in stretch marks on the skin. However, you can prevent this by doing some light exercises and by avoiding overeating especially the unhealthy foods. For your diet, ensure that you eat foods rich in vitamin C and zinc. Having a healthy lifestyle not only prevents stretch marks but also keeps you and your baby healthy throughout.

  1. Drink lots of water

Your main focus during pregnancy should be drinking enough water. Water will hydrate your skin from the inside and improve its elasticity. Drinking a good amount of water everyday has significantly prevented the presence of the streaks in pregnant women.

  1. Moisturize your skin

Now that we’ve seen how you can improve your skin’s elasticity internally, let’s look at what you can do externally. There are so many oils and moisturizers that can significantly prevent the appearance of stretch marks. Some of the best natural oils include cocoa butter, Shea butter, avocado oil and vitamin E.

You can get some stretchmark prevention lotions sold in stores although they might not be as effective. Normal moisturizing lotion should also work well because it’ll keep your skin moisturized.

  1. Massage your skin

As you moisturize your skin, it’s important to massage the oils in every day. Massaging your skin is one of the unbeatable hacks because it also has many other benefits including anti-aging benefits. Basically, massaging improves your skin’s elasticity so you need to massage the oils in whenever you apply them.

  1. Exfoliate

This simple process will help keep the stretch marks away when done right. Using a hydrating scrub or an exfoliating glove could really improve your skin rapidly. They will help to remove the dead skin cells and improve the effectiveness of the creams and oils. Do this just a few times a week for best results and don’t go overboard with the scrubbing.

  1. Be consistent

Preventing stretch marks needs a lot of time and dedication. If you want to see real results, you have to be consistent with your routines throughout. Following up for one week and the skipping for the next two months won’t help. It is a commitment. Be patient with the process and focus on a day at a time.

Sometimes however with all this prepping, some stretch marks might still occur. But it’s much better to do all you can to reduce the appearance of some. At the end of the day you really can’t tell.
