Female prisoners beg for sexual intimacy in Kenya


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


Speaking on behalf of other inmates, Sofia Swaleh who is serving a life imprisonment said the time allocated to their visiting spouses and relatives is brief and doesn't afford sexual intimacy.


She said;


“The Government, through the leadership of Kenyan prisons, should introduce a law that permits women serving lengthy jail terms enjoy sexual intimacy with their visiting husbands."


Mtangani GK Prison senior administrator, Purity Nkatha Muthaura who also spoke to K24 Digital, said it might be impossible to permit the feminine inmates or perhaps the male inmates enjoy legal right except a brand new law that permits for conjugal visits is gone along Parliament.


It was further gathered that the search to possess conjugal visits introduced within the country’s lawful detention centres struck a dead end in 2014, when the govt ruled out the likelihood of entertaining the suggestion on grounds of not being ready for it.
