Report: HIV Infections Highest Amongst Young Kenyan Women Because Of Sleeping With Older Men

Published

on

According to the National Aids and STI Control Programme (NASCOP), HIV prevalence is high among male aged 35 -45 and women 15 -24 because of the relationship between the two.

Currently, an estimated 1.5 million people in Kenya live with HIV and out of this number, youth account for 280,000. Out of the 50percent, adolescent girls and young women are at 21percent.

Report also indicate that of the sampled women in the program, only 17% insists on using condoms during sex. “When you talk about new infections, these are people who are HIV negative today but tomorrow they are HIV positive…the increased numbers among the youth are worrying,” Anthony Chazara, LVCT Health, Youth Programme Officer said.

Transactional sex popularly known as sponsorship arrangement has become a norm in the community with the report linking poverty and peer influence from other successful women pushing young girls into sleeping with older women for cash and other favors.

What this mean is the young men who date these young women are as well tied in the web of infection since they assume faithfulness but unknowingly sharing the same partner with older men who’re having multiple partners  It is such a big worry.

Club Associated With CS Echesa’s Deported Exotic Dancers Now Wants State To Pay Them Sh48M

Published

on

CS Rashid Echesa.

Balle Balle Club In Parklands that flew in the eight deported Pakistani women is now suing the state over the deportation of the dancers by police infringed on its rights and business. The club is seeking to be compensated with Sh48M which they claim was lost as a result of the deportation.

Arguing their case before Justice Luka Kimaru, the club represented by lawyer Evans Ondieki told the court that the dancers had been issued with special permits by the Sports CS Rashid Echesa to perform at the Balle Balle Club during the festive season but were arrested and detained illegally by police.

The court also heard, the girls were bundled out of the club and detained for 36 hours without bathing, which was a violation of their basic rights. They were held as investigations looked into the circumstances and validity of the permits issued by the CS who was alleged to have been involved in the human trafficking racket.

Earlier, the lawyers had sought for the court to compel CS Echesa and Matiang’i to personally compensate the deported girls despite having a standing order to produce them in court. The courts excused the CSs from the Sh9.1M fine and instead summoned detectives who gave out the girls to different state despite the case having been lodged in.

The club is now seeking orders restraining the DCI, DPP and Transnational Organised Crime Unit from entering, harassing, intimidating, arresting or doing anything prejudicial to its directors.
