This has to be the most intelligent headline I have seen in a long time. This is something we should be doing right here in America! The mistresses and boy-toys wives of these lawmakers need to stop giving it up in the bedroom so that things can get done! Sound cruel and unusual? Well, not to the smart women of Kenya.
Women in Kenya are witholding sex to protest the growing divide in the nation, organized by the G-10, a women’s umbrella group. The wife of President Mwai Kibaki and Prime Minister Raila Odinga have been called upon to support the cause.
“I will not get into what my husband thinks,” she said, chuckling, “but I will say leaders need to focus on the things that affect our people, and I hope the publicity from this campaign will raise awareness on those issues. ”
Even the sex workers have been told to hold off, even if it means that the women igniting the campaign have to pay them!!
However, the campaign has managed to spark some controversy in a nation where discussing sex publicy is unheard of.
“This will accomplish nothing other than embarrass us,” said Martin Kamau, a resident of Nakuru, a major city northwest of the capital. “We are being punished, and yet we are not the ones causing the problems.”
The initiative is set to last for seven days which is too much for some — but others claim they can handle the new campaign for an entire year.
Due to the post election violence that took place in 2008 which killed over 1,000 people, Kenyans have grown more and more frustrated with the new and unstable coalition government.
“We cannot allow our leaders to argue over non-issues while relegating the issues that affect this country to the back burner. When this happens, women suffer the most,” said Ann Njogu, director of Centers for Rights Education and Awareness, which describes itself as a non-partisan organization that “seeks to empower the society on women’s human rights.”
Government officials claim that they are open to the idea of reform.
“We are trying, coalitions all over the world have issues and so do we,” said Francis Mwaka, head of the government’s communications office. “We have always been focused on addressing problems even before this boycott.”
Not only will the campaign address politicians, but it will help to include both spouses into the discussion of reform in Kenya and “nudge them into demanding change.”
“Major decisions are made during pillow talk,” Nyaundi said. “We have to make the ultimate sacrifice for the good of this country.”
Yes to the reformation of our over-sexed politicians!!
