"Condoms are inventions by mzungus (whites) and should therefore be banned! " the Kenyan MP Ramadhan Kajembe said Thursday according to Mail&Guardian South Africa.
He continued his rant with saying that condoms are also painful to put on and that he finds advertisements for condoms offensive. Gor Sungu, another MP joined in the hate-debate and said that Kenya's censorship law, dating from 1963, is outdated and does not address the ethically reprehensible nature of some advertisements. He said modern advertisements aired on television are corrupting the morals of Kenyans. Many MP's agreed and a motion for a regulatory body has been made.
The Minister for Information, Raphael Tuju, said that the introduction of an advertising Bill will not lead to ad hoc banning of advertisements, as long as advertisers make sure their products comply with ethical standards. Which apparently those painful "mzungu things", condoms, don't.
