Kenya’s women activist groups have called for a week’s Ban on Bonking to demonstrate to the male leadership of the country they want political reform. Since the violence that marred last year’s erections, I mean elections, (a slip of the tongue or the African phonetic transposition of Rs and Ls?), there has been an uneasy truce on the political scene. Women have decided it’s high time this changed and to take matters into their own hands. They will even pay prostitutes to abstain, to get their message across.
There is something positively Gandhi-esque about the initiative and in a country so beset by HIV/AIDS and overpopulation, a ban on sex couldn’t be more to the point! Viva Mama Africa!
