Kenyan Women Use Sex To Turn The Political Tide

April 30, 2009

Kenya (ChattahBox) – The women’s rights organization G-10 have organized a campaign aimed at protesting the current form and function of the post-election Kenyan government. And they ask only that women refuse to give it up for a week.

“We are asking even sex workers to join the cause, even if we have to pay them ourselves,” executive director, Patricia Nyaundi (shown), said.

Kenya has been in a state of turmoil ever since the 2008 election that sparked violence in the region, killing more then 1,000, and leaving a tense mood surrounding the country. President Mwai Kibaki and Prime Minister Raila Odinga have been fueding ever since, ignoring the problems the country is facing, and creating worry over another violent strike.

While some say that the protest will only create martial problems and embarrassment, others see it as a great way to further public awareness, as well as demand change in a country torn.

“We cannot allow our leaders to argue over non-issues while relegating the issues that affect this country to the back burner. When this happens, women suffer the most,” Centers for Rights Education and Awareness leader, Ann Njogu, explained.
