Man who disguises as sex worker arrested in Uganda (Photos)


A man who usually disguises as a female sex worker was arrested by police in Uganda after several men claimed that he took money from them under false pretences.

He was described by most of the men as a beautiful woman who wore a wig, short skirt and makeup.

The man, identified as Ivan Bebeto, who calls himself Queen, has been operating through East and Central Africa including Nairobi (Kenya), Kampala (Uganda), Bujumbura (Burundi) and (Tanzania).

“It is not easy to discover that he is a man because he knows how to groom himself to look persuasively woman-like,” said a victim.

He wears feminine perfume and when he goes clubbing, he hangs out predominantly with women, especially commercial sex workers.”

Bebeto was arrested after a man who was interested in him paid for sexual favours, believing she is a woman.

He kept giving the man excuses why he couldn’t sleep with him even though he had already received a down payment from the wealthy man.

Bebeto said he could not go to his house, claiming he felt more comfortable in his room and thus asked the supposed customer to accompany him to a room where he kept his items.

It’s from this that the man suspected Babeto might be a criminal pretending to be a girl. He quickly informed the police who raided the apartment only to be shocked that he was a man and not a woman after questioning him.
