Stephen Letoo now declares interest in Men’s Conference chairmanship
Citizen TV senior reporter Stephen Letoo is now eying the post that was held by the late chairman of Men’s Conference Mzee Jackson Kibor.
Speaking to Hot 96’s Jeff Koinange and Nick Odhiambo, Letoo said he determined to fit into Mzee Kibor’s huge shoes.
“You know fitting in the shoe of the late Mzee Kibor requires so much courage. I am really trying to do all that I can to ensure that men’s needs are met. As small as I am and as short as I am, I am trying my best,” said Letoo.
The reporter also said those who will attend this year’s Men’s Conference on February 14 will receive flowers and chocolates.
He hinted that some of the key issues that will be discussed during the conference include mental awareness and family law. He said there will also be free prostate cancer screening for the participants.
Jeff and Nick both saluted Letoo and wished him success in his ‘new’ adventures.
The post of the Chairman of the Men’s Conference was declared vacant on April, 2 2022 after the Mzee Kibor’s burial at his farm in Samitui, Uasin Gishu County.
The announcement was made by the conference’s national convener Albert Kochei, who urged all interested persons to apply for the position.
Kochei, told the interested persons that a committee would be formed to vet the qualifications of all persons eying the seat.
“We need hard-working, upright and respectable men who have proved to be defenders for the boy child to come forward and take over the vacant position,” Kochei said.
Mzee Kibor, a former councilor, farmer, businessman and polygamist died aged 88. His husky voice and a high great sense of humour, won hearts in the male fraternity.
He stood firm and defended the rights of the boychild in the country. During his lifetime he sired 26 children – 15 sons and 11 daughters – from his four wives.
