THE GREAT CONDOM DEBATE: FROM RECYCLING TO ACUTE SHORTAGE
Few people can openly purchase a pack of condoms with a straight face. So it perhaps takes a little while to be convinced that a fully grown man allowed himself to be captured on TV, while washing a supposedly used condom, for recycling, i.e. re-using.
But that clip, followed by an admission by the Kenyan government that there was a condom shortage in the country, thrust this 'taboo' subject into some rare public limelight.
Powered by the amazing Storify application, I managed to compile a sample of comments, commentaries and general media coverage on this issue.
I wouldn't be too quick to repeat that, matters sexuality, are still taboo in the Kenyan society.
