Retired prostitutes in Zimbabwe are still earning money from their former profession by sharing their skills with the newer generation.

Believe it or not, retired prostitutes in Zimbabwe are still earning a little money from their former profession by sharing their skills with the newer generation.

The website myzimbabwe.co.za reports that retired sex workers are offering a “consultation service” to young women, teaching them how to practise safe sex.

Lima Mankarankara (66) says they teach women how to handle clients and use condoms correctly.

“Men abuse the girls and in this way we make sure they’re safe and don’t have babies, while we make something for ourselves too.”

The younger women show their appreciation for the lessons by paying the older women with food or money.

Mankarankara and three others are involved in the service and provide the younger women with condoms and pregnancy tests.
