I never expected to have to write that headline, but alas, this story is apparently true. After their national team defeated Ghana in the Africa Cup of Nations semifinal and earned their first-ever Final appearance, a number of prostitutes in Zambia decided to offer free unprotected sex to hundreds of men in celebration of the occasion.

The Herald, a government-owned paper in Harare, Zimbabwe and the country’s largest newspaper, picked up this report by The Independent Post:

PROSTITUTES in Lusaka’s Kanyama, John Laing, Chawama and Kalingalinga compounds on Wednesday night offered themselves free of charge to every Jim and Jack as part of their celebration after Zambia beat Ghana to advance into the final of the Africa Cup of Nations. A check by The Independent Post (TIP) at nightclubs such as Kanyama’s Kanchembele and Chine Chikayeba found long queues of men waiting to have sex with a limited number of prostitutes.

A single prostitute served nearly 11 men and there were more than 200 men wanting to celebrate Zambia’s first qualification into the final since 1994 in style.

The situation was the same at John Laing’s Corogo night Club which is situated just opposite John Laing Basic School. But at Corogo, a man in his mid twenties was beaten up after he took long with the one of the prostitutes.

“Yes, we beat him up because he took too long. We were too many of us on line and the guy kept on wasting time,” said an eye-witness, identified only as James.

And in Chawama as well as Kalingalinga, TIP correspondents said only a handful of prostitutes were made to serve tens of Chipolopolo fans. But another soccer fan who claims not have taken part in the “mass servicing” of prostitutes said the development was unfortunate.

Mike Tembo suspected that many young people might have contracted the HIV virus and other STIs during the “sexual celebration.”
“I think when Zambia plays the final, free condoms need to be provided so that we can protect our young men. Many of them had sex with the prostitutes without condoms,” Tembo said. – The Independent Post.

Three things jump out at me from this story. Point one: Ew. Point two: Ewww. Point three: See points one and two. I need like, eight showers now. With a Brillo pad.
