A Kenyan man is seeking damages from the country's quality control body, the tax revenue authority and pharmaceutical company Beta Healthcare after alleging that he contracted a sexually transmitted disease by using substandard condoms. BBC News reports that he claims they failed to protect consumers by branding Zoom Condoms with the quality mark of assurance. He said he bought the condoms between January and October 2014 in different parts of the country. He says he subsequently suffered a breakdown and became an alcoholic.
