A VILLAGE was in mourning on Friday after the death of a young woman respected for her efforts to protect local prostitutes.

According to Nyasa Times, Evelyn Mkumbwa (34) was admitted to Chikwawa District Hospital in the south of Malawi in May with pneumonia. She died there on Wednesday night, and her funeral was held in Mbenderana village on Friday.

Evelyn had been the chairperson of the Chikwawa District Sex Workers Alliance and was a tireless champion for the rights and safety of prostitutes.

Her funeral was a raucous celebration of her life, with some women twerking together around her grave, said the report. Some thigh vendors reportedly went as far as dishing out free se_x in honour of their departed leader.

One sex worker and friend of Evelyn’s, Aunt Shabini, runs a bar at Chikwawa Boma Market. She said: “Evelyn defended and protected a lot of sex workers by ensuring that our affairs as sex workers were properly harmonised. When we faced challenges she was the one in the forefront helping us. She tried to make sure that our rights are not violated in any form by customers. We will not forget her.”

Senior Group Village Headman Mbenderana is quoted as saying: “I have known our departed sister for a long time. And her participation in various community activities here just enhanced her visibility. She was so dedicated to helping other people in our community.”

Evelyn is survived by a daughter.

According to information obtained from her step brother, James Friday, the deceased started suffering from Pneumonia last year in November and she has been admitted to Chikwawa District Hospital on several occasions.

“My sister had been admitted to the hospital for several times, and in this month of May, she was admitted to Chikwawa hospital where on Wednesday night we received sad news that Evelyn had died,” said Friday.

Speaking during the funeral ceremony, Senior Group Village Headman Mbenderana told the gathering that Evelyn was a good person who helped the community in different ways and that she would greatly be missed.
