Nasa flagbearer Raila Odinga has renewed his calls to voters to abstain from s.ex on the eve of the General Election.

Mr Odinga has likened the election to a war, saying s.ex before the day warriors go to battle is a bad omen that could result in defeat.

"We are going into a war and we must fully conserve our energies before the day of battle which is August 8," he said in Homa Bay on Monday.

"None of us should have sex on the eve of the polls." He especially asked men to abstain from s.ex, saying it would result in some of them failing to vote on August 8.

Women, he said, should not consent to lovemaking with on the night of August 7. "All women should deny their husbands conjugal rights on the eve of voting," he said.

"This will ensure that we wake up early to vote and remain vigilant throughout the day until the results are tallied and announced."

It was not the first time the Orange Democratic November leader was discouraging s.ex at polls.

During the official launch of Nasa campaigns in Kakamega on June 3, Mr Odinga told his supporters to wait until after the election to enjoy celebratory s.ex.

"Dear ladies, tell your men to hold their horses until after the election and then you can have sex to celebrate our victory," he said to the amusement of the crowd.

He also made the call during a June 23 campaign tour of Bumula, Sirisia, and Cheptais in Bungoma County. In Homa Bay, Mr Odinga said August 7 and August 8 are days men should not sleep in their beds.

"Young men will sleep outside the house. When the day comes, no man should sleep with a woman," he told the crowd in Dholuo. He urged his supporters to wake up early and desist from activities likely to distract them from voting.

"If he moves closer to you, don't even look at him. Tell him we have a war to fight. Let us have intercourse after we get the presidency," he said in his mother tongue.

Mr Odinga is not the first politician to ask voters to discourage sext on election day. During mass voter registration in January, Mombasa County Women Representative Mishi Mboko urged women in opposition strongholds to deny men se.x if they don't list as voters.

Speaking at Jomo Kenyatta showground, Mkomani, in Mombasa, Ms Mboko said s.ex was a powerful weapon to make reluctant men rush to register as voters.

"As women who are committed Nasa supporters, this is the strategy you should adopt," Ms Mboko was quoted as saying on January 17.

"It is the best since quick and effective results are guaranteed. Deny them sex until they show you their voter's card." She, however, excluded her husband of the s.ex ban as he had already registered as a voter.

"My husband already knows his patriotic duty as a citizen determined to effect change through the election and has already registered to vote. He will be spared the boycott," she said.

If the opposition is to oust Jubilee from power, Ms Mboko said, some sacrifices had to be made. "I'm sure many (men) will go and register as they cannot survive without it." - Online Sources
