No Rest for Magoshas in the Vaal – They work 24hrs. GONE are those days when prostitutes only worked the streets during the night, nowadays its a 24 hour business.
In this town, ladies of the night work 24-hours a day without rest!
In pursuit of cold hard cash, young women can be seen walking the streets of Vereeniging, south of Joburg in the blazing heat of day.
Despite joint raids by police and public safety officials of Emfuleni Municipality, the town is known for its thriving drugs and prostitution business.
Young girls sell sex in small, dirty backyard rooms for as little as R50 a session.
Black and white men can be seen entering the premises or picking up the girls to do business elsewhere. It’s been several months since the premises were raided and this has meant more prostitutes on the streets and extended hours for business.
Emfuleni spokesman Stanley Gaba said they were still going to partner with the police to try and combat crime in the area.
Police spokesman Captain Fikile Funda said there were planned operations to combat crime in the area. “We’re going to partner with Emfuleni Municipality, as we have done in the past,” he said.
In previous raids, some of the prostitutes were found in their underwear and others naked, as law enforcers pounced on them. The prostitutes told cops they were from QwaQwa in the Free State, Randfontein in the west of Joburg, KZN and the Eastern Cape.
They said they came to Vereeniging to make a living from selling their bodies
