Kenya: Ridiculed Kindiki Now Defends Building Mud-Walled Classrooms

Tharaka-Nithi Senator Kithure Kindiki has defended himself after his photos taking part in the construction a mud-walled classroom elicited mixed reactions across the country.

While some supported the move, others ridiculed him saying the pupils deserved better.

Prof Kindiki in his defence said the mud-walled classrooms would temporarily be occupied by pupils, who are currently using a police post's buildings, until the permanent ones he laid a foundation for are completed.

While some bloggers referred the senator him as a humble leader, others called him a failure.

On "Tharaka-Nithi County Speaks" Facebook page, Kenny Marangu posted "Tharaka-Nithi County residents are worth more than these muddy classrooms."

Gee Em posted, "Prof Kindiki knows his electorates' priorities. Commendable job Prof Kindiki."

On Twitter Joy Karambu said: "Prof Kindiki stop demeaning yourself by constructing muddy classrooms in the 21st Century."

Photos of the senator went viral on social media with communication teams having a hard time justifying them.
