A Kenyan man is seeking damages from the country’s quality control body, the tax revenue authority and pharmaceutical company Beta Healthcare after alleging that he contracted a sexually transmitted disease for using substandard condoms, local media report.

The unnamed man said the three failed to protect consumers by branding Zoom Condoms with the quality mark of assurance.

The reports do not include comments from those being sued.

The man said he later passed on the disease to his wife, which should not have happened had he been using a good quality product.

He said that he bought the condoms in different dates between January and October 2014 in different parts of the country.

In the affidavit, he says that on 13 October 2014, he began to notice some rashes on his genitals and pain while urinating.

“I became extremely worried and it was then that I remembered the condom burst that had taken place nine days earlier. I immediately went to a traditional healer and sought some traditional herbal medicine which eased my pain,” he said.

He says he suffered a mental breakdown and become an alcoholic. His condition also led him to lose both his family and job.
