As lengthy and frequent blackouts dim the nation, sex workers have not been spared the effects of the power crisis.
I met one night queen at Chikwawa Boma last week. She said ussually she makes about K10 000 a night. But since last month, the highest she can get is K2 000 and at times this goes down to K500.
She charges each customer K2 500 for a short time service and K5 000 the whole night.
We will name her Zione. She is 19 years old, but has been working as a sex worker since last year.
