LASCIVIOUS night cops begged pole dancers Zoey Sifelani and Beverly Sibanda to dance for them following their arrest on Wednesday on allegations of public indecency.
The two women were held after their semi-naked pictures from their nightclub shows were published by the Harare tabloid, H-Metro.
But after being questioned overnight on Wednesday, Zoey and Bev were released without charge and were back at work on Thursday night.
Bev said they were “treated like friends” by randy officers from the Commercial Crimes Unit, and it soon became clear why.
She told the Daily News: “The police were not as harsh as we know them to be; they treated us like their friends and they were keen to see us in their company.
“Time and again they begged us to showcase our dance skills for them – they asked us to dance after every 30 minutes – throughout the night.”
The two women were asked to produce a licence from the Censorship Board approving their skimpy costumes – but they had expired.
Their lawyers hurriedly renewed the licences and Bev revealed they are determined to maintain their billing as the country’s top adult entertainers.
“Other dance groups were on cloud nine when they heard news of our arrest because they wanted to take advantage of our absence. They were shocked to see us on stage on Thursday doing what we know best,” she said.
She is keen to draw a distinction between their performances in crowded bars full of men and prostitution.
“Zimbabweans mistake a pole dancer for a commercial sex worker, but actually there is a difference between the two. We are not prostitutes but dancers though our dance is meant to seduce men,” she said.
