Faulty condoms gave me STD, Kenyan man tells court

Published

on

A man has sued Beta Healthcare and Kenya Bureaus of Standards over ‘fake’ Zoom Condoms that he alleges burst during intercourse.

The man has told the court that the burst led to him infecting his wife, who has since left him, with a sexually transmitted infection.

In his petition, he says that when he bought the condoms, he believed they would please his partner and also protect him fully but the condom broke.

“That I was fully aware of the dangers of having unprotected sex and decided to use my favourite brand of condoms being the Zoom scented chocolate flavoured studded condoms which I believed would please the woman and protect me fully,” he said.

In his sworn affidavit, he claims that he contracted STI as a result of using the fake condoms which led him to infect his wife who has since left him for infecting her with the STI.

“..that whilst I was having sexual intercourse with the woman the said condom broke a fact which I only realised after the act. That at the time, I brushed the incident as a non-issue and three days later I still had sexual intercourse with my wife,” he said.

The man also fears that he has been exposed to the HIV virus.

According to him, BETA, KeBS and KRA allowed a consignment of ZOOM condoms which of questionable quality to be sold to unsuspecting Kenyans.

In the affidavit, he says that on October 13, 2014, he began to notice some rashes on his private parts and pain while urinating.

“That I became extremely worried and it was then that I remembered the condom burst that had taken place 9 days earlier. I immediately went to a traditional healer and sought some traditional herbal medicine which eased my pain,” he said.

“On or about 14th, I decided to return to Nairobi on or about 25th October. While on my way to Nairobi, I became seriously ill on the bus and had to seek for medical attention.”

He said that it was at the clinic that he was diagnosed with a sexually transmitted infection and was treated for the same.

“I have since gone back to the clinic and obtained a medical report. That on 17th, my wife called and informed me that she had been admitted with an STI. My wife blamed me for being unfaithful and our relationship was strained afterwards.”

“My wife then became estranged and later left me for another man. After my wife left me, I became distressed burdened with guilt and even had a mental breakdown which led me to be an alcoholic and I lost my job.”

DANGEROUS: Pilot caught sleeping in the cockpit while flying 747 passenger jet [VIDEO]

Published

on

A senior chief pilot “with nearly 20 years flying experience” has been filmed sleeping in the cockpit of his passenger jet.

The man was in the China Airlines 747 while his co-pilot recorded him snoozing on the job.The embarrassing video surfaced just days after the Chinese airlines pilots ended an unprecedented seven-day strike over issues such as pilot fatigue and long working hours.

Taiwan’s flag carrier, which has its headquarters in Taoyuan International Airport, has responded to the incident saying the clip was filmed before the most recent strikes took place.The video shows the highly experienced chief officer with his eyes closed and his head down as he sits in the main seat of the cockpit.

While he is yet to be named, he is reportedly the airline’s most senior Boeing 747 pilot, with 20 years of experience flying mainly Tokyo, Okinawa, Seoul and Hong Kong routes.The chief pilot is also said to be an instructor in charge of simulations at the China Airlines Flight Training Centre.

Facing accusations including ignoring flight safety procedures, the pilot is said to have “received adequate punishment”, a statement by China Airlines said.The airline added that the video was filmed prior to the February strikes which affected roughly 20,000 passengers booked on about 100 flights.China Airlines has also suggested the co-pilot who filmed and released the video may also be punished for choosing to record the clip instead of wake his senior officer up.

A Kenyan man accused of stealing Sh3.6 billion ($36 million) from an American media technology services company has been extradited from his South American hideout.

He was returned to California from Costa Rica on Thursday to face charges of wire fraud.

Prosecutors said that as part of his job, McDaniel was charged with making payments to Hypermedia vendors.

According to the indictment, McDaniel formed a corporation using a name similar to one of Hypermedia’s vendors, then directed more than Sh3.6 billion in funds to the shell company and created bogus invoices on letterhead of actual Hypermedia vendors to justify the expenses.

McDaniel allegedly used the stolen funds to pay off Sh2.3 billion in credit card debt, and transferred Sh800 million to his personal bank accounts.

VIDEO: Uhuru loses temper, threatens to deal with CS Macharia

Published

on

BY OLIVIA MUNGWANA

A video has emerged in which an irate President Uhuru Kenyatta tells off  Transport CS James Wainaina Macharia for not living up to expectation .

Kenyatta made a surprise visit to a Chinese construction site where he found the construction work had stalled and started to enquire the reason behind it.

He also enquired on how they had been allocated funds and listened as the CS and the Chinese contractor each gave a different figure, much to the President’s dismay.

The CS tried to interject the President to save face for the Chinese but a seemingly infuriated Uhuru could hear none of it.

In their defense, the officials from the Chinese company insinuated that there was shortage of funds and that the project would be fast-tracked if they received enough monies.
