Female prisoners in Kenya are crying for a change in laws that prevent them from enjoying sexual intimacy with their spouses when they visit them in jail.
The s*x starved inmates have been making this demand since 2014. They said the current laws only allow a very limited time for their visiting spouse and relatives which prevents any form of intimacy.
An inmate, Sofia Swaleh who is serving a life sentence at the Mtangani GK Prison in Malindi, Kilfi County, made the call on behalf of her fellow inmates.
“The Government, through the leadership of Kenyan prisons, should introduce a law that allows women serving lengthy jail terms enjoy s*xual intimacy with their visiting husbands,” she said.
However, Mtangani GK Prison senior administrator, Purity Nkatha Muthaura, in an interview with K24 digital, said such a demand could not be permitted unless, the Kenyan parliament passes a new law allowing it.
