A section of women from Nyeri County have vowed to deny their sex to their spouses until they make sure they have voted for President Uhuru in the repeat presidential election set for October 26th.
In a meeting held at a hotel in Nyeri town on Wednesday, the women agreed to 'starve' their husbands on the eve of the Thursday's election so that President Uhuru would get the maximum number of votes from the region.
Led by Nyeri Women Representative Rahab Mukami, the women said the move will guarantee a big win for President Uhuru against his rival Raila Odinga of National Super Alliance (NASA).
In the run for August 8th election, former Prime Minister Raila Odinga was on the record asking his married supporters to refrain from sex on the eve of election.
At a rally in Homa Bay County, the Nasa leader called on residents to refrain from sex until he was declared the winner. He said; "August 8 will be a historic day and no vote will be left without being cast. Men will sleep outside. When the day comes, no man should sleep with a woman." The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader had earlier told supporters that, "when you are going for war, sex is a bad omen".
Kirinyaga, Nyandarua and Kiambu Women Representatives Purity Ngirici, Faith Gitau and Gathoni Muchomba respectively, were also present during the declaration by Nyeri women.
