Kenyan Man Sues for “Anxiety” After Week of no Sex

May 9, 2009

(ChattahBox)—James Kimondo went without sex for a week, after a women’s group organized a sex strike to force the war torn country of Kenya’s male leaders to work together to solve the country’s political and economic problems, and he isn’t happy about it. Kimondo is suing the women’s group that organized the boycott, claiming his wife refused him conjugal rights, causing him to suffer sleepless nights and anxiety.

Kimondo is seeking monetary damages for his extreme suffering from the women’s group, G-10, who called on every woman in the country, including sex workers, to stage a sex boycott to make a point to male leaders, who are ensnared in violent political clashes that have already killed over 1,000 people in their poor country.

Ann Njogu a leader of the boycott brought together a coalition of diverse women’s groups throughout the country, to harness the only power they had in the largely male dominated society, by withholding sex from the men in their country who refused to offer a non-violent solution to the country’s problems.

The deadly violence and economic turmoil all began to take hold on the daily lives of the women and children of Kenya, after Mwai Kibaki won the controversial 2008 presidential, which his rival, Prime Minister Raila Odinga accused Kibaki of stealing.

Since that time, the factions supporting each man have been violently fighting for political control, ignoring the country’s problems, essentially bringing the entire government to a standstill as people suffered and lost their lives.

This is not the first time women have used sex as a weapon, but not on such a large scale with a countrywide boycott.

And it seems to have worked. On Monday, the country’s two leaders, who have been violently fighting in a bid for political power, finally met for talks and held a governmental cabinet meeting on Thursday. The cabinet meeting was the first legitimate political assembly in months.

Energy Minister Kiraitu Murungi, seems to have heard the women’s message loud and clear, saying “… I hope there will be no cause for the women of Kenya to go back to that boycott again. We heard the message, we acted on it.”

The women’s groups say they will “monitor” the progress the men have made in implementing much needed political reforms in their country, in 90 days.

As to Mr. Kimondo with his cold showers and sleepless nights, the sex boycott ended on Wednesday.
