A section of Kenyan residents in Murang’a have resorted to the wearing of ladies panties as facemasks long before realizing that they have been shortchanged.
An interview conducted by Inooro TV saw these people say they were duped into buying these cheap items because they were cheap.
The flimsy mask costs a paltry Ksh.20 each with residents saying they only realized they were wearing panties long after they had bought the masks.
Worried and concerned that the masks may not be protecting them from the new coronavirus, the residents have asked the government to supply them with the appropriate masks.
The latest comes after the Government ordered all Kenyans to wear facemasks at all times while in public.
At the same time, the government said any supermarket found serving customers who are not in the protective masks would be closed down.
The same directive was extended to the transport sector where Kenyans are required to be in masks at all times during their journeys.
