At a time when Kenya is going through a period of drought and famine, Busia County is struggling with an acute shortage of condoms.
The worrying revelation is that some residents have resorted to recycling the produce while waiting for a new broadcast, NTV reports.
Busia, a border town linking Kenya with neighboring Uganda, is a hub for business and pleasure.
One of the booming businesses in the area is commercial sex work as there is an influx of truck drivers entering and leaving Kenya 24 hours a day.
This explains why shortages of condoms are fatal for many residents who want to indulge in sexual pleasure after a long day at work.

According to the call girls, the state condoms provided free of charge are hard to come by these days.
This can be attributed to a drop in funding from foreign donors, which has made it difficult to claim the merchandise, as it has been.
“Sometimes you find someone washing a used condom before you use it again and that means it’s easy to rupture because the lubricating oil isn’t there,” said one of them.
According to the director of medical services in Busia Janerose Ambuchi, the practice should be discouraged because it exposes users to sexually transmitted infections.
