The business of buying men’s sperm has been rife in Murang’a County, where some women pay up to Sh300,000 to conceive.
The most preferred men in the business are the 20- to 40-year-olds but they should be on courses that the women – Miss Independents – consider to be smart.
In addition, many women have said they prefer taller and more moderate skinned men, i.e. not too white and not too black.
A woman in the town told Nation, that these days women who have decided to hold on to their freedom of life do not want the disruption of marriage and instead “we are just looking for seeds to give birth and develop a generation”.
“Lakini katika kuzaa, tunafuatilia sana bahati ya kuwa na watoto wenye sura za kupendeza na pia ubongo stadi wa kuwawezesha kung’ara masomoni.”
In this case, the woman who is in the decision making and has reached the phase of the pregnancy is sending each other to the task of finding a ‘sperm sperm’.
“Mwanamume huyo ni lazima akubali kupimwa magonjwa hatari ambayo ni ya kizazi na pia yale ya zinaa. Akipita mtihani huo, ni lazima ameze dawa ya kuzuia maambukizi ya virusi vya Ukimwi wakati wa ngono na akubali kuhamia kwangu ili asiende kurandaranda huko nje na kuniambukiza ugonjwa,” she said noting that she was already raising a three-month-old twin, who was born through the same process.
The 38-year-old now paid a 23-year-old medical student who is studying at the University of Nairobi. She gave him Sh 300,000.
“Lakini alipopata habari kuwa nimepata pacha alianza kunidai Sh300,000 za ziada lakini nikamweleza hatukuwa tunauziana watoto bali kazi yake ilikuwa ya kuuza uwezo wa kutunga mimba bila kujali kama ningezaa mtoto mmoja au hata watoto 50 kwa mpigo mmoja,” akasema.
In addition, the man must agree to sign that his contract is for conception but not parenting and he will lose his relationship with the child and mother after the contract fulfills the purpose.
Dr James Muriithi told Nation Today “the irony is that many women have not understood that the brains of a child are more dependent on the brain of the mother”.
“Kandarasi hizo huwa ni za kuzima wauzaji hao wa mbegu kufuatilia uzazi wao ili watoto watambue baba. Wanawake hao hudhania kwamba kandarasi hizo huzima wanaume waliovunwa mbegu kufuata mali kwa kusingizia ndoa,” h noted..
