Kenyan opposition leader claims government is sterilizing young girls without their knowledge
In late 2014, the Catholic Church launched a campaign to protest against the vaccination.
National Super Alliance (NASA) leader Raila Odinga has raised alarm over tetanus vaccine that was administered by the Health Ministry, saying that the jab has a sterility hormone.
Addressing the press from Capitol Hill, Mr. Raila said laboratory tests from various hospitals showed the vaccine had traces of a hormone that would render the recipients infertile.
“The Catholic Church was right. Hundreds of our girls aged between 14 and 49 years old will not have children because of the state sponsored sterilization project that was sold to the state as tetanus vaccination,” Raila said.
In late 2014, the Catholic Church launched a campaign to protest against the vaccination, claiming that the Ministry of Health in a program sponsored and funded by the World Health Organization and UNICEF had used tetanus vaccines tainted with a sterility-inducing hormone called “Beta HCG," which leads to miscarriages and sterility.
However World Health Organization (WHO) and United Nations health officials denied the accusation stating the jab was safe.
Mr. Odinga now states that the Catholic Church was right in opposing the jab which has allegedly caused infertility in women between 14 and 49 years old.
Raila cited data from Agri Q Quest, Nairobi Hospital, University of Nairobi and Lancet Kenya, which “the results indicate that the vaccine had a high content of Better human chorionic gonadotropin hormone (hCG) that causes sterility in women” as the basis of his conviction.
The opposition leader who is set to face incumbent, Uhuru Kenyatta in Kenya’s fresh election scheduled for October 17 after the August 8th presidential elections was nullified by the Supreme Court termed the vaccination a human rights abuse and asked the government to publish a full list those who were involved in the process.
