Despite the illegal nature of their trade, sex workers continue to operate in broad day light at some shopping malls, high-end hotels and restaurants in the nation’s capital.

Their mode of operation is to dress well, buy a drink or just walk around pretending to be shopping or waiting for someone while they look around and find ways to approach their targets.

‘I was shocked when one well-dressed young lady approached me at one of the malls last week. I initially thought she was a marketing executive from one of the shops so I stopped to listen to her only to realise she was just ‘marketing’ herself, ’ a male shopper told The Mirror.

He said the lady, who was not shy, told him what she had to offer if he was ready to pay for it.

As if that was not enough, she further went ahead to give him her mobile number to call her should he have a change of mind.

This method seems more convenient for sex workers as they are not easily identified or noticed by security personnel or authorities at the properties where they operate.

A taxi driver said some of the sex workers, usually ladies, were even ready to satisfy their clients in the taxis at night.

“We see a lot of things around here. Sometimes, we see people having sex in a vehicle at the car park but what can we say or do?

He said some of the girls also leave their contact numbers on windscreens of  ‘posh’ vehicles for suitors to call them.

According to the taxi driver, it was difficult to make out the girls as commercial sex workers due to how well they dress and the ‘new’ mode of operation.

“These ladies are hi-tech sex workers with some driving their own expensive cars. Their targets are obviously rich men who are ready to pay high prices for their services,” he added.
