A Bulawayo man living with disability learnt the hard way that sex workers are not for charity after a prostitute he allegedly hired a�?confiscateda�? his prosthetic leg as punishment for failing to pay for services rendered.

After losing his artificial leg, the man who a witness identified as Jerry, a regular patron at a night spot along Lobengula Street, remained holed up for some hours in a room at a downtown lodge where he had booked in the lady of the night for a a�?good timea�?.

It is reported that Jerry, who had no money and was later turned into an epitome of humiliation, courted the ire of the prostitute when he bragged saying he was not going to pay her because her services were poor.

During the ensuing scuffle the lady of the night is alleged to have popped off Jerrya��s artificial leg and bolted out of the room leaving behind a paper with her phone number saying he should phone her if he gets the money in order to get his artificial leg back.

Jerry later reunited with his artificial limb after sympathetic workers at the lodge phoned the hooker and paid her.

Jerry had told them that he proposed love to the lady of the night and it was just out of love that he decided to have sex with her.

a�?Jerry claimed that it was his first time out with a stranger to a lodge adding that he proposed love to the woman not knowing she was a lady of the night. He said it was just out of love that he decided to have sex with her not knowing that she was going to demand payment.

a�?However, his side of the story was in contrast with that of the lady of the night who confided in us that Jerry hired her but told her that he had no money after the act.

a�?The hooker said at first she forgave him considering his condition but later changed her mind after Jerry shouted at her saying he was not going to pay her since her services were poor,a�? said a witness who is also one of the workers at the lodge where the drama occurred.

Jerry, however, could not be located for comment at his popular drinking spot by the time of going to print.
