Those who skipped Men’s Conference, ‘wamekaliwa na bibi zao’ MP says
Kitutu Chache South Member of Parliament, Antony Kibagendi, has chided men who did not attend this year’s Men’s Conference, which coincided with Valentine’s Day.
According to the lawmaker, men who did not attend the event did so because they fear their wives.
“Those who didn’t attend the Men’s Conference on Valentines, ni wanaume wamekaliwa,” Mr Kibagendi said in a post on his Facebook page.
At the same time, the MP confirmed that he attended the event that was held on Tuesday evening at the Carnivore grounds in Nairobi.
“I was the usher at the conference,” he said.
During the conference that has now become and event, Citizen TV journalist Stephen Letoo was elected the new chair.
Letoo garnered 10,023 votes against Cotu secretary general Mr Francis Atwoli’s 9,087 votes.
The seat fell vacant following the demise of Eldoret-based veteran politician-cum-businessman Mzee Jackson Kibor last year.

Albert Kochei, the national convener of the event, said voting was done physically and virtually.
“Mr Stephen Letoo is officially our chairman. The social media and media presence and campaigns appear to work to his advantage,” Mr Kochei told Nairobi News on Wednesday morning.
Mr Kochei further said that the annual event was attended by over 19,000 men, who graced the event both online and physically.
Kochei explained that the forum highlighted the plight of the boychild, raising cases of divorce and other contemporary issues facing men.
