Fed up neighbours in Kapenguria, a remote town in north west Kenya, have forcibly washed a 52-year-old bachelor. The farmer John Kasokong had allegedly not bathed for 10 years and his odour reportedly overpowered local people.
Irritated by his state, four muscular men trapped him while on his way from his farm and tied him down with ropes before giving him a thorough wash. Many people are said to have watched the public drama including the local chief.
Neighbour Rogers Kimwei said they could not bear Mr Kasokong’s body odour and were forced to hatch a plan to clean him.
