Kenyan man sues activists over sex boycott ‘anguish’May 9th, 2009 - 3:36 pm ICT by ANI
London, May 9 (ANI): A Kenyan man has filed a suit against the activists who organised a boycott on sexual intercourse, claiming that he suffered “anxiety and sleepless nights” during the politically motivated ban.
James Kimondo is seeking damages for the agony he suffered while his wife deprived him from sex.
Women’s groups had called the ban in a bid to force political leaders to put their rivalries aside to work for the common good.
Kimondo has lodged his petition for damages in the Nairobi High Court.
“Since the women called for the sex boycott, my wife has denied me my conjugal rights. This has caused me anxiety and sleepless nights,” The Telegraph quoted him as saying.
He added: “I have been suffering mental anguish, stress, back aches, lack of concentration.”
The strike ended on Wednesday with the organisers claiming it to be a success.
The leaders of the G10, a coalition of women’s groups, argued that the country’s male leaders should not have time for matters of the flesh when the country is ensnared in economic and political turmoil. (ANI)
