Trending on the interwebs is a section of Mathare village residents in Maragua Murang’a who were pictured wearing women underwear cut out to look like face masks.
According to CitizenTv the residents were attracted into buying the masks due to the low price “A flimsy mask of that nature costs a paltry Ksh.20 with residents saying they only realized they were wearing panties long after they had bought the masks.”
The residents bought the masks after learning the hefty repercussions that would follow if the new directive to wear masks in public spaces by the government would attract
Kenyans on the Internet can’t fathom how the residents could be that naive and have faulted the government for not providing the right masks to the people.
Where's all the mask's donations I keep reading about? Where are all the mask's the GoK was stitching that would cost less than a toddler's pantie? https://t.co/anqmX4ESjN

Govt having banned 2nd-hand clothes & many people staying at home, a trader in MURANG’A was left with a stock of women panties & here’s where he gets creative.
He hurriedly sold them to residents saying it was the ultimate protection from #Covid19.
