Kenya: Here is Wilson Sossion's New Bible Verse

Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) Secretary-General Wilson Sossion has invented a new Bible verse.

The nominated MP on Thursday, while addressing a press conference on the fallout over the new Competency-Based Curriculum, quoted an idiom and declared it a Bible verse.

"Bibilia inasema you can take a cow to the river but you cannot force it to drink water," said Sossion.

There is no such verse in the Bible.

It is an idiom that states; "You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink."

It means you can give someone an advantage or provide them with an opportunity, but you can't force them to do something if they don't want to.
