‘Bed­room power’ by women will break up fam­i­lies

The Star (Kenya) - - News Business -

Ad­dress­ing a meet­ing in Thika, Ruiru MP Es­ther Gathogo told wives to deny their spouses con­ju­gal rights if they do not sup­port women in 2017. She said women should use sex as a weapon to co­erce men to vote for fe­male can­di­dates in var­i­ous po­si­tions af­ter male MPs failed to vote for the two-thirds gen­der rule. This is ab­surd and maybe the reper­cus­sions never crossed her mind. Us­ing sex as a weapon to co­erce men will re­sult in mar­riage breakups, in­fi­delity and other fam­ily prob­lems. Un­der no cir­cum­stances should the fam­ily come sec­ond to pol­i­tics.
