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.

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.
