Tea Bonuses Attract Prostitutes In Bomet County

According to the residents in the county, the prostitutes have already reserved rooms in lodgings and made bookings to facilitate their much awaited adventure.

The issue has created chaos in the past with wives accusing their husbands of disappearing immediately after payment and showing up later on after the money has been exhausted with nothing to show for it.
