Senate deputy speaker Kithure Kindiki is the butt of the joke after he took part in the construction of mud-walled classrooms at Kamutuandu primary school in Tharaka constituency.
Residents say the deputy speaker, who was Senate Majority leader in the 11th Parliament, ashamed himself in taking part in the exercise.
The photos were shared on Facebook by the senator.
The residents are wondering why he could not find development partners and get proper classrooms for pupils.
The senator is a frequent flyer, hiring choppers almost every weekend.
The region is known for strong winds and thus the probability of the classes lasting is not guaranteed.
The residents also wonder why the Tharaka MP Gitonga Murugara could not allocate money for proper classes despite controlling CDF monies.
CDF has played a major role in constituencies in making sure schools are built to modern standards.
