Kenya human rights coalition has asked Kenyans and global citizens to boycott multinational tea products until Women’s sexual violation is addressed to the core by the tea factory.

The human rights coalition in a joint statement dated 24 February 2023 demanded action and accountability on the horrific working conditions, sexual exploitation and harassment faced by women in the tea industry.

The Coalition demands that the institution implicated in the documentary immediately and at their own cost provide the survivors and at-risk access to immediate independent medical, psychological and legal aid.

The Tea factory is as well expected of all women and girls who have been violated in the tea plantation.

The factory is further expected to show cause why its license should not be revoked, and its business shut down for violating local and international laws.

The coalition demanded that DCI’s thorough investigation establish the extent of sexual harassment in the factory.

The factory should as well identify perpetrators and forward all names to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations.

” Sex for work: The true cost of our tea is a wakeup call to the world. It is time for us to take action to end this horrific practice and ensure all women workers are treated with equality, respect and dignity they deserve.” said the coalition in letter.
