Certified Kandahar vendor Bad Black confirmed that she was forced to sell her goodies because her mother had turned her into a church drum.
While speaking during the interview, Bad Black said, “I believe no lady dreams of becoming a prostitute but problems push them into prostitution. I left home because of torture from my mother. I went to Nakasero Street where I started to work as a prostitute. I believe there are more girls who also left their homes because of torture,” the former Luzira Prison inmate narrated.
