The group’s Executive Director, Maryline Lain said,

“If nothing changes by the end of tomorrow, we are moving to the streets. Condoms are being distributed by the government for free, but why don’t we get them? We need those answers.

She also said “We have held a series of meetings with the relevant offices but as we speak they have not been providing us with condoms and as you are aware using condoms properly and consistently reduces risk of contracting HIV”.

National Aids Control council Coast Coordinator, Omari Mwanjuma who reacted to the threat of protest said condoms are available in public facilities, however in limited numbers.
