A man has sued Beta Healthcare and Kenya Bureaus of Standards over ‘fake’ Zoom Condoms that he alleges burst during intercourse.
The man has told the court that the burst led to him infecting his wife, who has since left him, with a sexually transmitted infection.
In his petition, he says that when he bought the condoms, he believed they would please his partner and also protect him fully but the condom broke.
“That I was fully aware of the dangers of having unprotected sex and decided to use my favourite brand of condoms being the Zoom scented chocolate flavoured studded condoms which I believed would please the woman and protect me fully,” he said.
In his sworn affidavit, he claims that he contracted STI as a result of using the fake condoms which led him to infect his wife who has since left him for infecting her with the STI.
“..that whilst I was having sexual intercourse with the woman the said condom broke a fact which I only realised after the act. That at the time, I brushed the incident as a non-issue and three days later I still had sexual intercourse with my wife,” he said.
The man also fears that he has been exposed to the HIV virus.
According to him, BETA, KeBS and KRA allowed a consignment of ZOOM condoms which of questionable quality to be sold to unsuspecting Kenyans.
