The swanky sex dens, unlike the clichéd threadbare settings and barely dressed women in many of Kenya’s brothels, have posh restaurants, swimming pools, saunas and bedrooms straight out of a five-star hotels.In one members-only facility located off Ngecha Road in the upmarket Kitisuru Estate, a 10-minute drive from Westlands, our mole had to accompany a patron to gain temporary membership for the night with strict instructions to switch off his mobile phone and avoid posing awkward questions.
With its polished mahogany counter and wide selection of high-end drinks, this could be any top-notch bar.
Annette, one of the women, says she is a banker by day, while Cynthia introduces herself as a lawyer who, clearly has to trade courtroom legalese with dirty talk.
This corroborates information from sources that some of the high-class prostitutes in such exclusive hangouts have well-paying careers elsewhere.
There are also a number of white women entertaining clients at the facility.
Our sources indicated that these women were mostly from Eastern Europe.
Attempts to investigate their immigration status were unsuccessful.
The founder member is said to be an established businessman, who lives in London and only visits once a month.
In fact, out of the 22 members, only 14 are in the country and use the facility several times a week, the remaining eight visit less than 10 times in a year. Everything is billed to one’s tab and is deducted from our accounts at the end of each month.
Every member, depending on how frequently they use the facility, deposits a minimum of sh300,000 and is reminded whenever their account is running low,” Annette told our mole.
Next to the bar is a restaurant that overlooks manicured lawns and a swimming pool.
Our mole’s host disappears with one of the women for one hour, and claims to have paid Sh50,000 for sex.
By the end of the night, Sh93,500 had been deducted from his account.
