NAIROBI Kenya, where one year ago the capital city was hit with super gonorrhoea A strand of antimicrobial-resistant gonorrhoea outbreak hit Kenya, according to researchers at the Kenya Medical Research Institute. The outbreak was said to be traced back to sex workers. (see how women are blamed, but not the men who are the ones using their services without protection)

However in the polygamist practicing country, girls (girls are children) are often used for sexual intercourse and underaged marriage. Which one would expect a country with legalized polygamy, men wouldn't turn to children for sex and marriage but they are.

Teen pregnancy is growing in the country. Much like it is in Uganda where 25% of teen aged girls become mothers.

Defilement and rape of children grew out of control in Kenya during the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown, in one county 1,400 girls from the ages of 10-19 were impregnated.

The then president, Uhuru Kenyatta, during a press conference, Kenyatta blamed the music on the child pregnancies. Children as young as 10-years old.

On today, 27 January 2024, women and some men in Kenya are protesting the murders of women and girls as well as the rape and gender-based violence. President William Ruto has been silent, along with the United States, whom early issued travel warnings to several African countries due to their anti-LGTBQ bills. Why wouldn't the US mention African women>

This march was in part sponsored by the Canadian Embassy in Kenya.

They're killing us, slaughtering women as if they're nothing, even girls too. Rape cases are on the rise world-wide as well.

Men are coming to social media to even laugh at these cases, this is common in countries like Kenya and Ghana and I don't understand why. I feel like there is some evil minded humans that would be better off dead then to be existing in this world with others.

I once wrote about Kenya's impending LGGTQ bill, in which government officials want to impose a 50-year jail sentence on homosexuals. I title the article they way I did because it truly appears as Kenya hates, gays, girls ad woman. and here you can read it.

From March of 2023, in this article below, I will adress the rampant rape which they call "defilement" of girls in Kenya. Something that is also a huge issue in their neighboring country Uganda, which is also known worldwide as paedophilia. In Uganda, 1 in 4 teen girls is pregnant, to make matters worse, most are kicked from their homes or from school.

2023 statistics for Kenya:

A total of 110,821 pregnancies were recorded among adolescents aged between the ages of 10 to 19 in the first five months of 2023. Data from the Kenya Health Information Systems shows a total of 6,110 were among adolescents aged between 10 to 14 years while another 104,711 were between the ages of 15 and 19

Fighting sex pests, Homa Bay children enrolled for martial arts training

“I encourage other parents to let their children participate in the game. It will help them in case the children are kidnapped,” Ms Majiwa said.

In Mbita’s Victoria School, a group of 40 children have enrolled into karate. To make the matters worse, some of those entrusted with protecting the children are the ones abusing them.

The latest case is of a priest who is accused of defiling a 13-year-old girl during a prayer session at his home in Kopiyo village last Sunday. He’s in police custody.

County leading; Homa Bay is one of the leading counties with sexual offence cases in the region. According to the 2022 Kenya Demographic Health Survey report, the county is ranked second in cases of physical violence at 54 per cent. It is ranked third nationally in sexual violence at 24 per cent.

According to experts in the gender sector, some of the cases are attributed to poverty and ignorance.

Another case was of a teacher at Nyajanja Mixed Secondary school, who is accused of defiling six students and making one of them pregnant.

Sadly, most of the cases do not make it to the courts. They are ‘mediated’ in sessions where perpetrators and victims negotiate and solve the cases at home, mainly by exchange of gifts.

On January 27th, Kenyans will take to the streets in a march against femicide in the country.

The women-led march will honor the memories of the thousands of women who are leading a march through the streets of Kenya, they're begging for men to stop beating and killing them.

There were 2 murders in Kenya's AirBNB's, this is how the two Nigerian men were arrested and are being charged for her murder.

Also here is a post from a Kenyan woman, she posted several tweets on Twitter X advocating for the removal of Nigerians from Kenya. She incited many Kenyans on social media to violence towards Nigerians as well. Here is only one of her posts, where she calls the Black, Nigerian man "white!"
