How far should a man be willing to go to raise money to feed his family?
Some Kenyan men are willing to go all the way – to the extent of renting out their wives to old and/or rich tourists to chop down for cash!
According to reports, some Kenyan men in the coastal region of Mombasa are now engaging in the practise because it’s profitable and brings home a lot of money.
Kenyan tour guide Kimani James reveals he’s been doing it since August last year, and it brings in good money, allowing their family to survive.
“All this begun when one of the tourists asked me for a favour, to help get him a Kenyan woman to spend a good time with while in Kenya, and due to extreme poverty I offered my wife instead,” Kimani revealed.
“My wife and I are still married and love each other though she has completed her two months contract and thereafter she got hooked up with another white man, she makes a total of over 40,000 Kenyan shillings ($385) per month and she is a breadwinner in the family.”
Police in the area has confirmed Kimani’s family is not the only one practising such actions, with some ladies even having two husbands – their original Kenyan husbands and a white husband.
This sounds insane to me but in the grips of poverty, we know people are willing to do anything they can to survive and this is just one example.
