Two sisters from Nandi County who shocked the country on Friday after revealing that they love eating washing soaps have denied that they are not ‘cleaning’ their ‘hearts’
Their reaction comes after they were trolled by Kenyans with majority taking the joke further that the sisters might be trying to ‘clean’ their hearts.
Sharon Chepchirchir, 24, and Lydia Chepkemboi 17, had revealed that they enjoy eating soap and revealed they have never experienced any side effects or irritation from the soap.
“I don’t know why I eat soap but I enjoy it. I discovered my appetite for soap when I was five years old,” says Chepchirchir.
She revealed that her bizarre habit started at the mere age of five, so technically she’s done it for 19 years. She was surprised to find out that her younger sister Lydia shares the same appetite for soap.
“My younger sister lived with my aunt and we rarely met. One day, I noticed she had a bar of soap in her pocket. I asked what she was doing with it and she said she eats soap. This brought us closer because we borrow soap from one another,” she says.
