The increasing state of poverty along the Kenyan Coast is now forcing residents to rent out their spouses to rich tourists for some income.
In order to survive and maintain an average income, some Kenyans have been handing over their wives or husbands to the tourists who want a good time before reuniting with them after the job.
Among the persons already in the job is James Kimani, a tour guide, who says that he has been renting his wife out for such since August 2018, in pursuit for that extra coin.
He says that it began when a tourist asked for his help to get a Kenyan woman with whom he was to spend his time with in Kenya, and due to the poverty, he handed over his wife.
However, he says, he had to pass her out as his sister to make her acceptable to the man.
“Yes, I have a nice, bubbly woman. She is dark-skinned, well endowed and naughty. She is my younger sister, very single and well behaved. I can bring her tomorrow,” he reportedly told the white man.
He says that they are still married and love each other, though the woman has been away from home for the last two months after he hooked her up with another tourist, adding that she brings home as much as Sh40,000 a month.
