70 percent of women in prison are there because of men – Kenyan activist reveals


By Kayode Sanni-Arewa

A Kenyan 's rights activist, Ms Kamaitha, has said that most female inmates in the country were because of men.

She made that assertion after visiting Langata women's prison, where she ran a programme for a year.

According to her, approximately 70 per cent of the women were sentenced to terms due to cases involving male folks.

The Author said that due to her experience and what she learnt from the female prisoners, she now fears jail more than poverty.

Kamaitha said; “I have come to fear jail more than I fear poverty. I ran a project at Langata women's Prison for a year, and I can tell you for a fact, fear jail.

Also, almost 70% of the women in that maximum security prison are in there because of men. Fear men first, then fear jail, then satan.”
