Coast women to their men: No voter ID, no conjugal rights

By Kelvin Karani | February 4th 2022 | 2 min read

Women from the Coast region have threatened to deny their husbands their conjugal rights if they will not register as voters ahead of the August polls.

Presidential voter mobilization squad coast region patron Lillian Otieno urged women to ensure that they only engage intimately with their husbands upon them registering as voters.

“Let women stick with the plan of ensuring their husbands have registered as voters before thinking of having sex with them,” she said.

She spoke during a media briefing held at Akamba Handicraft in Changamwe constituency, Mombasa county during a voter sensitisation program. The presidential voter mobilization squad coast region patron said the program is under Azimio la Umoja movement to ensure voters register in large numbers to enable ODM party leader Raila Odinga to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta in this year’s polls. 

Lillian asked girlfriends to follow suit by denying their boyfriends sex unless they register as voters.

“Women are the backbone in their homes and men must work with them for the smooth running of domestic affairs,” she said.     

Speaking at the voluntary forum, a local Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) official in charge of voter education Susan Atokh denied claims the electoral body has taken a stand ahead of the polls. She insisted the electoral body will remain neutral before and after the polls.

“The electoral body has encouraged eligible voters to register in large numbers to ensure they participate in the forthcoming polls,” she pointed out.

On her part, a Changamwe resident Sabina Omari urged youths to be at the forefront to ensure they register as voters before this year’s polls.

“Our target in the program is to ensure youths register in large numbers,” she said.
