Some of the female prisoners of Mtangani GK Prison in Malindi, Kilifi County of Kenya have begged to be allowed to enjoy s£xual intimacy while in jail.
The female prisoners begged the Kenyan government to institute new laws that will allow them enjoy s£xual intimacy with their visiting spouses.
Speaking on behalf of other inmates, Sofia Swaleh who is serving a life sentence said the time allocated to their visiting spouses and relatives is brief and does not allow for s£xual intimacy.
“THE GOVERNMENT, THROUGH THE LEADERSHIP OF KENYAN PRISONS, SHOULD INTRODUCE A LAW THAT ALLOWS WOMEN SERVING LENGTHY JAIL TERMS ENJOY S£XUAL INTIMACY WITH THEIR VISITING HUSBANDS.”
Speaking with K24 Digital, Mtangani GK Prison senior administrator, Purity Nkatha Muthaura said it would be impossible to allow the female inmates or even the male inmates enjoy conjugal rights except a new law that allows for conjugal visits is passed by Parliament.
A request for conjugal visits have been made in the past but in 2014, the Government ruled out the possibility of entertaining the suggestion on grounds of not being ready for it.
Abiodun: Ogun Ready To Begin COVID-19 Vaccination, Launch Amotekun In Yewaland
The Ogun State governor, Dapo Abiodun has disclosed that the state was ready to receive Covid-19 vaccines and begin the vaccination process, adding that the entire whole chain required for the vaccination has been identified.
Governor Abiodun, who made this known at the Executive Chambers of the Governor’s office, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, said his administration had gone a step further by ensuring that all of its refrigerators were in good condition to store the vaccines.
The governor added that his administration had received guidelines from the National Primary Health Care Development Agency on those to be prioritised.
He said: “We actually have more refrigerators than the number of wards that we have; so, we have those that are there right now and we have the back up as well, so, we are actually prepared.
“We have a set of guidelines from the National Primary Health Care Development Agency on those we are going to prioritise, which will be our frontline health care workers, people that have the responsibility of reaching out to our people.”
Abiodun added that his administration was on the verge of beginning another round of Primary Health Care Centers (PHC) rehabilitation, as it hoped to have completed close to 300 health care centers by the end of the present tenure.
The governor further disclosed that the Amotekun security outfit would soon be launched in the Yewa axis of the State, noting that his administration decided to launch the security outfit first in Yewaland because of the peculiar problems in the area.
Abiodun, who revealed that he was glad with the recruitment process for the security outfit in Yewaland, which he said was almost done, noted that the recruitment process took into consideration people from the immediate terrain.
“Our Amotekun will soon be launched and because of the peculiar problem that we find ourselves in Yewa, we are launching the Yewa Amotekun first, we want it to be clear that we are tackling this problem frontally.
“The recruitment for Amotekun in Yewaland is almost done.I know that the recruitment process took into consideration people who are from that immediate corridor, who know the terrain very well, that is the principle of Amotekun.
“We are not going to include someone to work in Amotekun in Oja Odan, who is from Ado-Odo-Ota: all those that will work in the corridor are those who know the area very well,” he said.
Governor Abiodun thereafter charged transition committee chairmen to take ownership of the various social intervention programmes currently going on in their various local governments, saying, he expected them to help provide names for the various programmes and also have a database of the men, women, youths and vulnerable people in each local government.
“It is important for you to have the database of those names, because I will be demanding from you that database. We are a data-driven administration,” he said.
Earlier in his remarks, the Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Afolabi Afuape while appreciating the Governor for his support for the transition chairmen, stated that his support had made the life of the people at the grassroots more meaningful.
In their separate remarks, the transition chairmen for Odogbolu Local Government, Femi Onakoya, Abeokuta North; Tunde Tella and Ado-Odo-Ota local government; Wasiu Lawal who spoke on the transformation their senatorial districts had witnessed since the Governor came on board, appreciated the governor for the opportunity given to them to serve the people.
Soyinka: It’s Madness Sign To Think Nigeria’ll Work Without Restructuring
Nobel laureate , Prof. Wole Soyinka, on Saturday , re- echoed the call for restructuring the country as a means of tackling some of the major problems confronting it.
Soyinka stated that there was a consensus among Nigerians that the country must be restructured urgently , saying anybody still asking what restructuring means despite the numerous explanations already provided should be ignored because such persons had chosen to be ignorant deliberately.
The elder statesman spoke at the 2021 Obafemi Awolowo Lecture titled , ‘ Whither Nigeria ?’ organised by the Obafemi Awolowo Foundation.
The event, which was held virtually , had in attendance dignitaries, including a former Secretary – General of Commonwealth , Chief Emeka Anyaoku ; the Emir of Sokoto , Saad Abubakar; Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi; former Emir of Kano , Muhammadu Sanusi II ; and former Deputy Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria , Obadiah Mailafia , among others .
Awolowo, who died in 1987, would have been 112 years old on Saturday.
Soyinka said , “There is a consensus that this country whether in terms of governance , economic relations , security , educational policy , cultural policy , etc, requires restructuring . Even the word ‘restructuring ’ has been restructured in many directions , in cogent expression which will mean the same thing for everybody .
“For me , for instance , I emphasised decentralisation , reconfiguration… We all know what we have now is not working , it ’s obvious and we can’ t continue along the same line and say that it will work, it is sign of madness .
“I want to make a plea to all governors , stop being so timid . Push this federal envelope as far as it can go , even while we undertake the technical aspect of restructuring whether in terms of dialogue, evolving the constitution or whatever, something has to go on , after all, we’ ve had so many of these confabs .
“My plea is to governors to start with : You are charged with the immediate responsibility of the welfare of your own people in whatever term and if you study the constitution carefully , I have done this with lawyers , and it seems that a lot can be done at this moment .
“You need a season of greater autonomy for your own states and that is what I mean by pushing the federal envelope as far as it can go even with this impossible document that we have to cease what power , what authority you can derive from the constitution .
“ Consult with your lawyers , I have consulted with mine and they also expressed the view that the governors are too timid, there is too much centralised mentality embedded in their minds and they are afraid to come out of their cocoons.
“Please remember that your primary responsibility is not the centre but the people , the state . So , take in your hands any form of authority that you can even from this constitution as it stands while we are working on a more honest, a more people -oriented constitution. ”
Anyaoku also said Nigeria needed a new constitution which would be produced by the people
He said , “There is no section or ethnic group that does not stand to gain from belonging to one country that is the size and resources of Nigeria . Therefore, it is and should be in the common interest of ethnic groups and component parts to sustain and nourish one country .
“The growing level of distrust and divisiveness among ethnic and religious groups are undermining the cohesion and threatening the continued existence of one Nigeria . For how can the leadership of Nigeria continue to ignore this fact?”
The guest lecturer , Odia Ofeimun, and Sanusi , however , clashed over why the North had been educationally backward.
Ofeimun, a poet who was the private secretary to Awolowo, said , “ Every child in the North should go to school . There is an ethnic argument against education . They are using that argument to stop the rest of us from moving forward . ”
Ofeimun had hardly finished speaking when the former Emir of Kano tackled him , saying the problem was not ethnicity but the failure of the government to provide schools, train the teachers and provide everything needed to encourage the children in the North to go to school .
Sanusi said he also believed that the problem was ethnicity until he became the emir and saw the situation differently .
He also argued that the British colonial masters did not want the North to be educated like the South.
Obaseki, Oshiomhole Meet Publicly For The First Time Since After Edo Polls (pix)
The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki at the weekend maintained that he has no personal grudges against his predecessor and former chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, but only dislikes his style of politics.
Obaseki disclosed this to journalists in Auchi, Etsako-West Local Government Area of the state, at the Centenary Birthday Thanksgiving of Msgr. Thomas Oleghe and 18th Canonical Erection Anniversary of the Diocese of Auchi held at Immaculate Conception Cathedral in Auchi.
Obaseki, who exchanged greetings with an elbow-bump in compliance with COVID-19 preventive protocols, with his predecessor, said they are both sons of Edo with interest of the state at heart.
The governor said: “I don’t have anything personal against Oshiomhole. I may not like his politics, but he has not done anything personal against me. We all are interacting with the interest of the country and the development of our community at heart.”
The governor said the Zonal Congress of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), which was scheduled to hold this Saturday, was postponed due to the local government elections taking place in Delta State.
“The Zonal Congress, which was to hold today has been postponed to Tuesday and it’s a normal routine to satisfy the party’s constitution; there is nothing amiss,” he added.
On his part, Oshiomhole, who was a guest at the event, hailed his successor, Governor Obaseki, describing him as ‘his brother and friend.’
Oshiomhole stated: “Once the governor speaks, the matter ends. The governor knows that pensioners here might not be able to do much, that is why he said every other thing required to complete the hostel of the Catholic School of Nursing and Midwifery in Uzairue, his government will do.”
