A Kenyan company reportedly won the hearts of many after its male employees went to work on Thursday dressed up as women to mark the annual Customer Service Week which falls in the first full week of every October.
According to Standard media, the male employees at Chloride Exide, a battery manufacturing company, set the internet on fire after they showed up at work clad in heels and dresses, in a move aimed at showing their support for women's health, particularly breast cancer.
