A burst condom is at the centre of a law suit which a Kenyan man instituted against pharmaceutical company Beta Healthcare, the Kenya Revenue Authority and the Kenya Bureau of Standards, after he contracted a sexually transmitted infection (STI).

The man was quoted in The Star, saying that he was "fully aware of the dangers of having unprotected sex and decided to use my favourite brand of condoms being the scented chocolate flavoured studded condoms, which I believed would please the woman and protect me fully".

In a sworn affidavit, he said his wife left him after he was infected with an STI, which he passed on to her, CitizenTV reported.

To add to his woes, he also reportedly suffered a mental breakdown, became an alcoholic and lost his family and job.

The man claimed his friends told him they also experienced this issue with the same brand of condoms.

Comment from the other parties was not obtained.
