Members of the public in Mbale town, Vihiga County were Thursday afternoon treated to a free theater when a conductor was forcefully bathed in public by his colleagues.
The conductor was ejected from his vehicle by the colleagues at Mbale stage and washed in full glare of the public.
He was forced to undress, first the shirt, and then the trouser and finally the under clothes before his colleagues went to work.
“I’ve always been busy waking up at 4 am and sleeping at 12 midnight. I’ve had no time to shower,” the conductor popularly referred to as JJ told his workmates.
His colleagues said passengers travelling in his vehicle had been complaining of an unbearable odour emanating from the conductor’s body and most were shunning the vehicle.
The conductor was scratched with manila polythene bag pieces soaked water and soap while the public watched closely, women surrounding him with their eyes focused on certain parts.
“I now feel fresh,” said JJ as he confessed he had shunned bathe for quite some time.
Other conductors warned their colleagues who do not bather risked the same humiliation, saying they are tarnishing the crew’s image.
