Nairobi, Nov. 26 -- When Kimani Kibiku first reached out to share his story about keeping a bar soap for 58 years, he said it was simply because he is a fan and a regular consumer of Nation's content.

"You can call me old-school," he quipped. "Every day, I buy one of your newspapers, mostly alternating between the Daily Nation and Business Daily. But I always get the Nation's weekend editions. I, especially, love the Lifestyle stories which I find relatable and entertaining."

So, having read many people's stories, Mr Kimani thought it was time he finally shared his, with the hope that someone might enjoy it. His was a peculiar tale of a bar soap of the "Key" brand that was manufactured by East Africa Industries (now Unilever).
