Yet again, people living in Ladysmith are complaining about the prostitution taking place in the CBD area.
The latest complaint is that young prostitutes in Forbes Street are dressed in incredibly revealing outfits.
Many residents are saying that the ‘ladies of the night’ barely have any clothes on as they ply their trade.
The ‘pick-up’ point is at the traffic circle in Forbes Street, which is one of the main roads that lead into the CBD. Motorists are thus forced to see the prostitutes “flash” vehicles to attract business.
A couple with four children were driving back home after having supper and were shocked to see a young prostitute wearing a short skirt that barely covered her buttocks.
“This is shameless! We cannot let our children see females dressed in such a manner on the streets. Some of these girls look as if they are under-age, which makes the situation worse,” said the concerned couple.
Others feel this is merely their way of making an income, but they should be more discrete.
