Governors go 'blind' during Lunch
They experienced difficulty eating with a knife and fork while blind so they opted to use hands.
The governors were blindfolded as part of a social experiment durign the launch of the Public Participation Guidelines in Braille.
Kericho Governor Paul Chepkwony was seen struggling to hold his cutlery and drink his soup in a short video posted online.
Environment Principal Secretary (PS) Charles Sunkuli also experienced difficulty eating with a knife and fork while blind until he opted to use his hands.
"For the first time I was able to understand the saying we don’t see with our eyes.
"This was a very brilliant concept because for sure I was able to walk a mile in the shoes of the visually challenged," the governor commented after the 'blind' lunch.
A representative from the British High Commission who attended the event tweeted: "Just had a three course meal...in darkness. Humbling experience with amazing , practical lessons."
Former journalist Julie Gichuru, who hosted the event alongside disability activist Reginald Oduor, explained that their aim was to raise awareness on the challenges of disability.
She encouraged others to try out the experiment for themselves for an "eye-opening experience".
