Why Mombasa Men Are Forced To Rent Out Their Wives To Tourists

There are a lot of things a man can essentially do in this world to generate income, yet by trying to work here and there and finally things fail to work can lead to suicidal thoughts. Due to too much poverty along the Kenyan coastal counties in Mombasa, some residents are now forced to rent out their wives to wealthy tourists for some extra income.

As a way of fighting poverty in the area, a few Kenyans have fostered a behavior of giving out their wives to the rich tourists who need fun time before they reunite with them after the contract.

Among individuals who are victimized is one of the local escorts knownas as Kimani James, who narrated that he has been renting his better half since August last year, intentionally to bring in some additional money.

This started when one of the travelers asked me for some favour, to assist with getting him a Kenyan lady to spend some good time while in Kenya, and because of outrageous poverty, I offered my wife instead, ‘he said.

They lease their spouses for a couple of months

He said he had to call her his sister to make the white man accept her.

‘’I have my younger sister who is single, nice looking, well behaved and dark-skinned, I can come along with her tomorrow, according to Kimani.

My wife and I are still married and love each other though she has completed her two months contract and thereafter she got hooked up with another white man, she makes a total of over Kshs40,000 per month and she is a breadwinner in the family, ‘he said.

Kilifi town police boss, Mr Okeri Patrick also confirmed having similar strategy, adding that some women in the area already have two men, the original Kenyan husband and the white man.

This kind of habit has also affected over 13,000 young girls engaging in sex tourism along the coastal counties of Mombasa,’he added.
