Call Girl?

Hello kids. I know its been awhile, cuz i have become a corporate man now, so until I am up and running, I will let my subordinates entertain you. Here is a rather interesting article I cam across while at work.

JOHANNESBURG – The proposal on prostitution being legalised during the 2010 Soccer World Cup was yesterday described as “immoral” by several political parties.
This after an ANC MP George Lekgetho suggested on Tuesday that this is one of the things that would make the tournament a success during a meeting of the Portfolio Committee on Arts and Culture in Parliament.

He was quoted as saying: “We hear of many rapes because people don’t have access to women.”
Speaking to The Citizen yesterday, leader of the African Christian Democratic Party (ACDP) Reverend Kenneth Meshoe described the proposal as a joke and that it was upsetting to promote something of that nature. “There is no way we as the ACDP can support this.
“We are living in a time when people are dying as a result of HIV and Aids. It is ridiculous to be sending out a message to people, especially the youth, to be sexually immoral,” Rev Meshoe said.

He added that legalising prostitution won’t change anything as rape cases are still going to be around.

The main opposition party DA’s MP Sydney Opperman echoed Meshoe’s sentiments saying the legalisation of prostitution would be totally unAfrican. “We can’t use sex tax because of bankruptcy. We oppose the proposal because it is immoral and we are faced with major challenges such as HIV and Aids as well as teenage pregnancy. What kind of a message is this to jobless matriculants,” Opperman said.

Meanwhile the Young Comminist League (YCL) viewed the proposal differently.
YCL’s Castro Ngobese said there was no reason why it should not be legalised as it is within the Fifa’s rules.
