My Mzungu Boyfriend Abandoned Me

Kilifi April, 12   2011 Once upon a time,  a mzungu, swarthy man landed in Kenya, visited an upscale night club in the coastal town of Mombasa.

There he met girls and soon he was living with one of them, for 6 months they lived a perfect life– quite an experience.

Like they say, Sex tourism requires Third World women to be economically desperate enough to fall into men from affluent societies.

That is how a 30 year old woman found herself in this situation.

A 30 year old woman has been fined sh.2000 by a Kilifi court for assaulting members of the public while drank at Mtwapa Township in Kilifi County yesterday.

Mary Kemunto will have to serve 4 months imprisonment in default for the offence.

She appeared and pleaded guilty to the offence before Kilifi resident magistrate Edgar Kagoni Matsigulu.

The accused was charged that on April 11, 2011, while in the streets of Mtwapa township and being drank and disorderly, she assaulted members of the public by shouting abusive words at them.

In mitigation, the accused said she has been living a disparate life after she was abandoned by her white boyfriend six months ago.

She could not immediately pay the fine and was taken to Kilifi GK- prison in Bofa.

Why Tourists Visit Kenya

____________________________________________________________________________________________

A number of reasons have been documented in the official statistics as the reasons why tourists visit the country.

First is Kenya’s natural beauty and its landscape, which makes it one of the most beautiful and interesting places in the world.

Second is the country’s wildlife Safari. Kenya has immense biodiversity in flora and fauna, which makes it an ideal spot for tourism.

Apart from its natural beauty and wildlife safari, white sand beaches, good climate and cultural activities are the other reasons why tourists visit Kenya.

Although not officially stated, a good percentage of foreign tourists who visit Kenya often indulge in sex tourism or at least as part of the activities during their trip (Chissam 1996; Sindiga 1999).

The majority of the tourists visiting Kenya are mainly from Germany, the UK, Switzerland, Italy and France. Others are from North America, Japan, Australia, New Zealand and European countries such as Spain, Sweden and also from the Scandinavian countries.

Many of these countries have been generating sex tourists to some of the world’s renowned sex tourism destinations such as Thailand (Ryan and Hall 2001). Hence we can conclude that they are likely to engage in the same activity while in Kenya.
