Kenyan Business Woman Launches Condom Delivery Service

Kenyan Businesswoman Launches Condom Delivery Service
A Kenyan businesswoman has launched a condom delivery service to help tackle AIDS, saying many people are too embarrassed to buy them.

Faith Ndiwa told the BBC she had the idea after some of her friends died.

“Most of them died of AIDS because they shied off buying condoms,” she said.

The condoms are usually delivered by motorbike to beat Nairobi’s notorious traffic jams but on Valentine’s Day, two limousines decorated with red flowers were used for some customers.

Ms Ndiwa says she has already has about 4,000 clients – men and women – after starting her business two weeks ago, ahead of Friday’s official launch.

“It is time we beat this culture of being afraid, as it will help us save millions if we can practise safe sex,” she told the BBC.
