KENYA WOMEN STAGE ' SEX STRIKE': MAKE WAR NO LOVE

Labels:
UPDATED NEWS

Women's groups in Kenya have started a week-long "sex strike", in an attempt to press the country's leaders to resolve rifts and work together.
10 non-governmental organisations urged women across the nation to boycott sex with their husbands and partners along with a statement calling for reforms in government and action on promoting women's rights.
Rukia Subow, chairwoman of the Women's Development Organisation, said the group believed the boycott would persuade men to press the government to make peace.
"This is a national boycott to show that the women of this country have resolved to push for reforms," she said. "We want an urgent solution to the political problems facing this country."
The group would pay prostitutes so they would participate in the strike, Subow said
Ida Odinga, the wife of the prime minister, Raila Odinga, said on Thursday that she would join the strike to protest against divisions between her husband and the country's president.
"This should not be seen as a punishment to men, it is a measure that is aimed at drawing their attention to the real issues," she said.
The east African country has been in political turmoil since a presidential election in December 2007 which Odinga accused Kibaki of stealing.
Protests led to violence that killed more than 1,000 people and left more than 600,000 homeless.
The two rivals were pressed into a power-sharing deal by the international community but disputes have crippled the coalition government and fuelled wide popular discontent.
