Getting Lucky

This couple really got lucky…in more ways than one.

A couple caught having sex in a Kenyan mosque during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan have been sentenced to 18 months jail for what the judge called an “abominable” affront to religion.

 

Peter Kimani and Jennifer Wairimu pleaded guilty to the charge of having sex in a place of worship after being caught on October 3 at the Abubakar mosque in Gilgil, about 60 miles north of Nairobi. Neither is a Muslim.

 

A worshipper heading for evening prayers found the couple having sex after investigating what the prosecution described as strange noises emanating from a dark corner of the mosque.

 

Kimani and Wairimu both pleaded for clemency at Monday’s hearing, saying they were too drunk to know where they were. Kimani told the court he thought he was in a lodging house.

 

John King’ori, senior magistrate in nearby Naivasha, dismissed their plea.

 

“Having sex in a mosque is a most abominable thing to religion and only a custodial sentence can add justice to this,” he said.

Having sex in public…in a mosque…during Ramadan…and offering the excuse that they were drunk. These people are a Darwin Award waiting to happen. They’re just lucky that Islam is not the official religion of Kenya.
