Bill Pending in Nairobi Would Make Sexual Harassment A Crime

A bill pending in Nairobi would criminalize "unlawful, unsolicited and unwelcome sexual advances or request for sexual favours."  Sexually suggestive jokes, leering, intrusive sexual remarks, touching or fondling and exhibiting sexually explicit materials, gadgets or organs, would also result in criminal liability.  The law carries a maximum 5 years imprisonment, with steeper penalties for those in positions of authority such as teachers who harrass students or hospital employees who harrass patients.  Story . . .  [Mark Godsey]
