‘We want to have sεx with our partners when they visit’– Female prisoners in Kenya to officials

According to report from Kenya, female prisoners want a new formulation of law immediately that can allow them to have sex with their partners when they come visiting because, from the look of things, they are yearning for it desperately.

Some inmates of Mtangani GK Prison in Malindi, Kilifi County of Kenya have begged the country’s government to institute new laws that will allow them to enjoy sexual intimacy with their visiting spouses.

Speaking on behalf of other inmates, Sofia Swaleh, who unfortunately has been sentenced to life imprisonment, said that the time given to their visiting spouses and relatives is too short and does not give room for 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,” Swaleh said.

However, it seems their request won’t happen anytime soon as Mtangani GK Prison senior administrator, Purity Nkatha Muthaura told K24 digital it will be impossible to allow for such conjugal rights to be enjoyed unless a new law is passed by Parliament.

It was further gathered that the quest to have conjugal visits introduced in the country’s lawful detention centers struck a dead-end in 2014 when the Government ruled out the possibility of entertaining the suggestion on grounds of not being ready for it.
