A Kenya referee named, Martin Wekesa, is suing the Kenya Football Federation for 20m schillings (approximately €180,000) after he claimed the coach of one of the teams involved in a game which he was refereeing squeezed his testicles which meant he was unable to enjoy the use of said testicles.
Sparki Youth coach, Daudi Kajembe, was banned for life as a result of the assault which happened in September of last year.
From Michezo Afrika:
Martin Wekesa has now sued FKF National Chairman Sam Nyaweya for loss of conjugal rights and is demanding 20 million Shillings in terms of compensation. A demand letter by the complainants attorney Cornel Shisanya dated 5th April 2013 and addressed to Nyamweya partly states;
‘’That my principal sustained very serious injuries by the sole negligence of your part and thereby puts you liable for a maximum compensation of ksh 20,000,000/= which have been arrived in the following manner;
-That a doctor’s report reveals that my principal has suffered permanent incapacity and can no longer enjoy his conjugal rights as required by following extensive damage to his sexual organs.
Wekesa later told a local radio station about his ordeal:
That was the most gruesome moment of my life, I can never explain the pain but I am lucky to be alive.
On that day I remember I fainted after the guy attacked me squeezing me dangerously in my sensitive parts. I remember waking up three hours later while in hospital and it has been a long time to recovery.
I was affected mentally and physically as well since I became a subject of ridicule in town.
Every man out there might not have gone through something like this but we certainly empathise with your pain, Martin.
