The Church in Kenya has always been vocal on issues that affect its believers and the public at large. A section of religious leaders have condemned the communications regulator (CCK) for failure to take action against a condom advert aired on national TV stations before prime time news.

According the Church leaders, the “Weka Condom Mpangoni” advert, intended to educate the public on the importance of condom use, is promoting immorality rather than playing its intended role. Bishop Julius Kalu of the Anglican Church of Kenya, Mombasa Diocese, said the advert openly agitated for extra-marital affairs and sex among school-going children.

In the ad which has been on TV for quite some time now, one of the ladies inquires about the other’s husband and then immediately seeks to find out how her mpango wa kando (clandestine sexual partner). The first lady then goes ahead to explain that even though her husband may be away, that does not mean that she miss out on “fun” since the other guy is readily available to provide it. The second lady then counsels her to always use condom whenever she’s having “fun” with her mpango wa kando.

A section of Christians are even arguing that the Weka Condom Mpangoni ad is against the word of God and also encourages adultery. They go ahead to pose what happened to “wives submit to your husbands” or “wacha mpango wa kando? Check the ad below and share your views;

This comes just months after Fresh Fri’s TV ad raised questions and had guys arguing whether it was the epitome of creativity or profanity.
