Valentine’s Day in Kenya: Men’s Conference or prayers at Nyayo Stadium?

On Tuesday, February 14th, lovers worldwide will celebrate their love in different styles, which hugely involve flower presentations and gifts.

In different streets, the lovers are usually spotted donned red clothes, which symbolizes their relationship.

However, recently, specifically in Kenya, the day has received resistance from men who have allegedly claimed that the female gender is overdoing it.

As lovers prepare to showcase their love to their partners on Tuesday, some men will attend the Men’s Conference at the Carnivore Simba Saloon.

This is according to Men’s Conference co-ordinate and aspiring chair, Mr Stephen Letoo, who has asked men to avail themselves of a way forward.

Different speakers are expected to address the occasion, including Music Copyright Society of Kenya (MCSK) Chief Executive Officer Ezekiel Mutua, celebrated Swahili news anchor Rashid Abdallah, and Ian Mbugua among others.

Mr Letoo has said that Men’s Conference is not meant to interfere with the lover’s plans since they will still have time to celebrate their affair.

“Those ladies saying we are eating on to their Valentine’s time, it is a week day, a working day. We will utilize the afternoon hours, so that in the evening they will have ample time with their hubby or boyfriend enjoying dinner,” Mr Letoo said.

The conference will also address the vacancy in the position of chairman, which was held by the late Mzee Jackson Kibor, who died last year.

Mr Letoo has been campaigning for the position.

For those who might have difficulty showering their lovers with gifts or attending Men’s Conference, there is another function that the government has organized.

On Sunday, while speaking at an interdenominational service in Nakuru, President William Ruto said that the country is going through tough times, which have been caused by drought.

The President announced that he would lead the country in prayers at Nyayo Stadium to pray for rain.

“For those who will not be able to make it to Nyayo Stadium, have services anywhere and pray for the country,” President Ruto said.
