. . . man loses US$200 to hooker
. . . says he was robbed for nothing
THE supposed desire to satiate sexual cravings left a man stranded after losing money to a hooker.
The incident occurred along Selous Avenue last Friday and left the man US$200 poorer and stranded as his journey to Zambia was cut short since it was the only money he had on him.
The hooker was only identified as Petronella.
Petronella reportedly pounced on the man, held him by the collar and searched his pair of trousers and took US$200 meant for the journey.
“I never hooked her for sex as alleged but she asked me to stop and started accusing me of failing to pay her for sucking my manhood the previous day,” he said.
“She never gave me the chance to defend myself and started searching my pockets and got off with my US$200 I wanted to use as bus fare to Zambia.
“I was just walking down the street when she approached me and her colleagues were following closely and I could not fight her.
“Zvezita siyanai nazvo varume, mari yangu yaenda pashaiwa andibatsira, pfambi idzi dzavakutenge mhuka dzemusango. I could have been killed,” he added.
Petronella, who sells her body in the streets and housed at Kennedine Court along Central Avenue, refused to entertain H-Metro but reliable sources told H-Metro that she hired a taxi to Mbare National where most hookers who extort their potential clients hide.
Men are losing money daily to hookers in the Avenues as they lure their potential clients charging US$2 for a ‘quickie’ and end up extorting or robbing them of all their money, H-Metro is reliably informed.
Some of the cases go unreported to the police as victims are afraid of stigmatization.
