Chirundu Boarder Post (the Western Zambezi River boarder post between Zimbabwe and Zambia) like most boarder posts is a hive of activity with a lot of human and commercial goods crossing the border on a daily basis. Long ques of commercial trucks in transit are a common and regular sight as they wait their turn to be cleared on both sides of the boarder before they can proceed with their journeys. More often than not the final destinations are not only Zimbabwe or Zambia but countries as far as Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Tanzania, South Africa (Johannesburg, Pretoria, Durban and Cape Town).  

 Prostitution is the world oldest profession legal or not and is practised in all communities the world over. Even in the era of HIV and AIDS the demand for paid sexual satisfaction remains strong despite the risk of contracting and spreading HIV.

The Border community of Chirundu, 383km to the West of Harare is no exception to paid sexual activity. Chirundu is a small border community in Mashonaland West Province on the border with Zambia.This is a wildlife area and elephants and hippos often wander into the small area inhabited by locals. There have been cases of people being trampled to death by elephants.
