Ernest Osundwa, project engineer, Insteel : Both need to stay in shape. It’s a matter of self-image. If you take care of your body, you’ll feel more comfortable with yourself. Ideally, women should be more sensitive to body shape. The reality is that no one is attractive in an ugly body.

Daniel Ohawa, Human Resource: Women because they need to look fabulous all the time. To me, physical appearance comes first then intelligence, character and wholesomeness.

Eric Keng’ora, Electrical Engineer: Men because a man’s only beauty is his shape. We do not put on make-up or anything else so we depend on our body shape to define our image and people notice more easily when we are out of shape. We have to work hard to remain in shape.
