An unusual protest rocked Ndeiya ward in Kenya yesterday as the women resident in the area took to the streets to lament the inability of their drunkard husbands to father children with them, threatening to look elsewhere for sober bedmates.
They said their men had abandoned their homes for the comfort of drinking joints where they consume too much illicit brew.
Speaking during a peaceful protest at Thigio shopping centre on Monday, the demonstrators said younger women are the worst affected as they are “unproductive”.
“If you walk in this village, you will find so many young married women, but only a few are pregnant. Those who are not are suffering in silence because their men cannot perform”, resident Nancy Wangare said.
She further stated that their men had been drinking anything alcoholic to keep them high, but the society bore the consequences of sexual dysfunction.
“It would not be a wonder if we start looking for men to sire our children. Our husbands will not know anything. We will trick them that the pregnancies are theirs and they will support us”, Wangare said.
The 32-year-old mother of one separated from her husband four years ago.
