    FREE FORCEFULL SHOWER

     
    Kisumu commercial cyclists 'boda boda' forcefully bucket baths their colleagues that have not taken shower for long. The cyclists, most of who have registered themselves under Self Help Groups, contribute cash to buy water and soap for this shameful event. Their contributions also go towards buying new cloths for their victims.
    I took a live video using my phone to capture the event. I had to take the event without being noticed because the crowd was very rowdy.
    The men were strip naked unwillingly in front of the on lookers which included women and children. The activity is so serious that not even one of them can defend their own. The second victim who came to defend his colleague (whose cloths are being removed in the video) was not lucky because all of his cloths were removed including his underpants which resulted in the injury of the victim.
