Really!? -> Kenya’s High Court Rules In Favour Of Sex Between Cousins


A Nairobi court on ruled that sexual relations between cousins is not illegal in Kenya.
According to the Standard, the ruling was made in a judgment summary after a woman took her nephew to court for sleeping with her daughter.
High Court judge James Makau found that the Sexual Offenses Act did not mention cousins among the list of relatives under the offence of incest.
“The National Assembly did not leave out the clause on cousins by intension but by the fact that in some cultures in Kenya, like the Hundus and Muslims, allow sexual acts and marriage between cousins. It is not criminalized,” said Makau as quoted in the newspaper.
He further rules that sex with cousins is permissible because there are no provisions for it in the law.
The case was brought to the court after the nephew, name withheld, was found engaging in sexual acts with his aunt’s daughter.
