Fishermen in Kenya have found a creative way to protect them whiles they are at sea.
In a video shared on the British Broadcasting Cooperation website (BBC), they explained how they use condoms to waterproof their phones when they are at sea
“Our phone capsize and we lose our phones many times, we have to be creative all the time due to our meager earnings,” fisherman, Ali Mibwana Mwatela said.
According to Ali they are also able to call their customers to meet them on arrival at shore.
“If you put your phone inside a condom, you can call your customer and meet on time at shore. You are able to sell your fish without hassle,” he said.
“A condom also helps when your boat capsizes while you have your phone with you.”
You are able to use your phone to call for help and give your location. Rescuers will easily locate and save you,” he added.
This causes some marital problems for them since some wives get upset seeing condoms in their husbands’ pockets but this is a very smart life saving innovation by fishermen from Mombasa Kenya.
