A Kenyan man has sued Kenya Bureau of Standards, Kenya Revenue Authority and Beta Healthcare over faulty zoom condoms.
The man, who sought anonymity, claimed that on October 4, 2014 he bought the condoms which burst during intercourse leading to Sexual Transmitted Infection to his wife who later divorced him.
“While I was having sexual intercourse with her the said condom broke a fact which I only realized after the act. At first I brushed the incident as a non-issue and used them three days later,” he said.
In the affidavit, he said he began to notice some rushes on his private part and pain while urinating, a discovery that gave him sleepless night.
“Immediately I went to a traditional healer and sought some traditional herbal medicine which eased my pain. One week later the pain worsened and sought for further checkups in a clinic where I was diagnosed with a sexually transmitted infection and treated on the same day,” he said.
His wife divorced him barely a month when she was called diagnosed with the same infection. She blamed him for unfaithfulness.
“My wife then became estranged and later left me for another man. After she left, I became distressed and burdened with guilt and even had a mental breakdown which led me to be an alcoholic and finally I lost my job,” he noted.
The man has demanded stern action to be taken against Kenya Bureau of Standard, an organization responsible for the provision of standardization, measurement and conformity of assessment services, Kenya Revenue Authority, a body which assess and account for all revenue and Beta Healthcare, a pharmaceutical manufacturing company for allowing a consignment of zoom condoms which of unquestionable quality to be sold.
This has added misery to Kenya Bureau of Standards which is also being sued for allowing illegal sugar to enter the country. The sugar is alleged to contain mercury and copper which are harmful to health.
