A bill to teach sex education and provide access to contraceptives in schools was introduced into Kenya’s upper house of parliament in 2014, provoking a national outcry.
“People are fearing that when you’re speaking about sex or when you’re speaking about sex education, it’s like losing your values,” said David Opoti Inzofu a pastor at Nairobi’s Riruta Christ Bible Church, who openly discusses family planning with his congregation.
One in five teenage girls are mothers, with some 13,000 dropping out of school each year to raise their children, UNFPA says.
State prosecutors in Kenya have charged a man with having sex with two goats belonging and killing them afterwards.“All girls, all boys must have comprehensive sexuality education,” said Babatunde Osotimehin, UNFPA executive director.“That’s really when they can make the choice in their lives.” Kenya pledged to improve access to sexual education and family planning services at the 2012 London Summit on Family Planning, but has had difficulty implementing new policies due to conservative opposition.It all started with a member of the group who was showing concern to another member, by typing “it shall be well and God is in control.”The next person then posts: “On matters hospitality.”The woman, who appears to be having a raunchy chat with someone else mistakenly sent a wrong message to the group, detailing how she enjoys sex.The message reads: “Rubbing your (censored) onmy (censored) and licking it up then slowly sliding it back in.”*Members of the Group reacted immediately with several emojis to express their shock forcing the lady whose name and identity was n't revealed due to legal reason to leave the group.
