Touts at Mombasa stages must stop ha­rass­ing women

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

I re­cently passed by twice in Mwembe Ta­yari, Mombasa, at the Magongo and Mikin­dani matatu stages and in those two in­stances, touts ha­rassed me. It was hell on earth. Af­ter mak­ing it through, l turned back and saw more women go­ing through the same ha­rass­ment by these touts. The touts block your path, pulling and push­ing you to en­ter their ve­hi­cles. They are un­apolo­getic. I no­ticed they only tar­get women. This hap­pens in other towns and must be stopped. The worry is se­cu­rity. What if they snatch­ing per­sonal ef­fects?
