Women in Ndeiya ward in Kenya say their drunkard husbands are unable to sire children and they may look elsewhere for sober bedmates.
They said their men have abandoned their homes because of drinking too much illicit brew.
Speaking during a peaceful protest at Thigio shopping centre on Wednesday, 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 said men have been drinking anything alcoholic to keep them high, but society bears 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,” Wangari said.
