Condom maker given more days to file response on defective products

By Paul Ogemba | July 26th 2018

A company accused of manufacturing defective condoms has asked for more time to reply to a suit, by a man claiming he contracted a Sexually Transmitted Infection after the contraceptive burst.

Beta Healthcare International Ltd argued that the case, by Williamson Nyakweba, is complicated and requires sufficient time to prove that their Zoom brand of condoms are not substandard.

Justice Wilfrida Okwany allowed the company’s request, and gave it 40 days to respond to the allegations.

Nyakweba sued the company as well as the Kenya Bureau of Standards and Kenya Revenue Authority, for allowing defective condoms in the Kenyan market thereby putting the lives of many men in danger.

He stated that on October 4, 2014, he used the condom during intercourse with a woman he met at a wedding ceremony and realised it had burst during the act.

Justice Okwany has scheduled the hearing for October 24.
