Police in Mombasa are investigating an incident where a commercial sex worker was allegedly killed by a client in Bombolulu, Mombasa.

The 32-year-old woman was found murdered outside a guest house on Friday morning after spending a night with the unknown man at a local guest house.

Nkoko Injuu Africa Executive director, Maryline Laini, said the deceased who was a member of her organization, had reported to work on Thursday at around 9:00 pm when she met the said perpetrator.

It's alleged that the man killed the woman after a disagreement over payment.

"We highly suspect they disagreed over payment since prior to her death she had informed her workmates that she had made a kill," Laini claimed.

Laini disclosed that the naked body of the woman was discovered by her colleagues, who later alerted the police.

"It's still unclear if she was killed inside the guest house and her body dumped there since her workmates never heard any type of commotion at the time her body was discovered," she added.

According to Laini, the body of the deceased bore strangulation marks.

"Her neck bore strangulation marks we highly suspect she was strangled inside the room before her body was dumped here," Laini added.

She called on authorities to speed up investigations and bring to book those behind the heinous act.

"Life of a sex worker does matter... she has left behind children. We call on the police to speed up investigations and act on cases where sex workers feel their lives are being threatened," she said.

Police said investigations are ongoing but no arrests have been made so far.
