Women from Limuru town, Nazareth, Ngaransa, Farmers Corner, Kwambira trading center, Rironi, Ngecha, Ndeya and other villages took to the streets protesting against their’ husbands who have abandoned their homes for illicit brew.
They are requesting young and energetic men imported from other parts of the country to help them.
They claim their husbands fill the illicit brew dens as early as 7:00 AM in the morning when they are preparing breakfast only to return midmorning drunk, dirty and tired looking for lunch. And if there is nothing, they return back to the drinking dens until late night, they came back making noise but they start snoring immediately they touch the bed. They sleep like logs till the next day.
One woman disclosed that the situation is so rampant that some men are unable to sire children, she said “if you walk in these villages, you will find so many young married women, but only a few are pregnant. They are suffering in silence because their men can not perform in bed”. Another one added, ” Yes! We need to procreate but sometimes we don’t let them touch us because they will make you feel dirty and leave unsatisfied”.
They are requesting the interior Cabinet Secretary Dr. Fred Matiang’i, the Police and other State bodies to intervene by de-registering all wines and spirits outlets in the area, reviving and reintroducing the Mututho laws and organize a crackdown to close all unlicensed illicit brew pubs in the area
