There are weird occurrences in news nowadays, the stories appear bizarre but can be reasonably believed.
A group of Kenyan female prisoners have expressed their minds to the government in the country over their inability to have sexual affair since their incarceration in the prison.
The female prison inmates have therefore reportedly petitioned their government to allow their boyfriends to have intercourse with them when they pay them visit in the prison.
The female prisoners who expressed lack of amorous affairs also asked the president to allow their boyfriends to eat with them during the visitations.
One of the inmates speaking on their behalf and who is serving life imprisonment, Sofia Sweleh hoped their pleas will catch the attention of the President.
According to her, the time allocated to their visiting spouses and relatives is so short that does not allow for sexual intimacy.
“The Government, through the leadership of Kenyan prisons, should introduce a law that allows women serving lengthy jail terms enjoy sexual intimacy with their visiting husbands,” said Sofia Swaleh.
Currently, once you are sentenced, a prisoner loses most rights including the conjugal ones.
Meanwhile, Mtangani GK Prison senior administrator, Purity Nkatha Muthaura reportedly told K24 Digital that it will only take parliament to make changes to the law as prisoners have demanded.
Reports say in 2014 a similar suggestion was made but the Government kicked against it, saying it was not being ready for it.
However, it is unclear if the government will ever give a listening ear in order to grant the demand of these saddened inmates.
