Short Story: It’s a Night Job by Joanita Male

I read a short story named It’s a Night Job by Joanita Male. This is a story of a girl in a prostitution industry in Uganda. This night job have been passed down among the women in the family. To me, the most heartbreaking moment was when the mother said “Look after your body, you never know when you’ll need it to make a living” to her daughter. This suggests that prostitution became an official occupation for living. Also, through out the story, how the speaker remains to keep neutral attitude towards prostitution makes story more emotional because it shows how common this night job is established as a career in the society. If you would like to read the entire story, here is the file:  The African Writer_waiting page
