Rift Valley Regional Commissioner George Natembeya has said real men shower once per week.
Addressing students at Bwake Boys High School in Cherangany, Trans Nzoia County, Natembeya in a joking manner said it is not a common trend for boys especially students to bathe daily.
“I know men don’t shower daily, or is that not the case here? Why should a man bathe daily? Men should shower once a week. If there is no water what will you do?” Natembeya piqued.
He further faulted the county government of Trans Nzoia for failing to provide Trans Nzoia residents with clean and safe drinking water.
In his quest to win their votes, Natembeya said if elected the second Governor of Trans Nzoia, he will seal all corruption loopholes and ensure that every homestead and learning institutions have clean water throughout.
“Boys don’t worry, lack of water in schools like this means somebody has squandered resources meant for provision of water. However, we will ensure you get a constant supply of water so that you can bathe as you wish. You know cleanliness is next to godliness,” Natembeya added.
The Regional security boss also warned the students that the government will not spare any student who will be found culpable of torching schools.
“Some students are very stupid. Their parents sold cows to take other cows to schools. Please if you have really missed your mother, just seek permission and go home alone, don’t disturb others, remember if you are found guilty of criminal offences, we are waiting for you outside. We shall deal with you ruthlessly,” he warned.
This comes at a time when over twenty schools have been burnt over the last one week in the country.
Education Cabinet Secretary Prof. George Magoha has said the government will not bear the cost of reconstructing destroyed infrastructure and that parents will shoulder such costs which has caused a lot of jittery among parents in Kenya.
