It’s normal for human beings to have sexual desires and since the prisoners cannot get women, they turn to each other for sexual satisfaction. In former VP, Moody Awori’s days as Minister of Home Affairs, he introduced reforms to Prison Service which saw prisoners enjoy some luxuries. However, one crucial thing was not factored in the reforms; that of conjugal rights.

Homosexuality is a difficult subject to discuss. But behind prison bars, it’s normal for a man to take another man in order to satisfy his desires. Some accept it willingly; others are forced into it through rape or sodomy, constantly emasculated until it becomes a part of everyday life.
Lulu Hassan visited various prisons in Kenya to bring you this story told through the prisoner’s’ eyes. Watch the video below courtesy of KTN.
