Anger and Mockery after a County Government Allegedly Built This Toilet (PHOTO)

They say that wonders shall never end, more so in politics, especially Kenyan politics. We see things that some leaders do and wonder whether they really consider it public service to the people who elected them. These same leaders will even go ahead and inscribe their names or institutions they lead as being the people behind the project.

One such project is one small room that is supposed to be a toilet, which was built by Tharaka Nithi county in the financial year 2018/2019. The latrine is so small I can't imagine a grown adult fitting inside it comfortably.

Looking at the photo which has been widely shared online, there is a big piece of land available and one would wonder why the room had to be so small. For a pit latrine, even if the underground hole was small, you can still make the room itself big enough.

Kenyans have taken their time to mock the project which was undertaken by Tharaka Nithi county, which is led by governor Muthomi Njoki, which most people have intimated may have cost something in the region of millions, in Kenya's leaders' shameful habit of inflating project costs.

Keep in mind that Tharaka Nithi has been the greatest contributor of votes to the Jubilee administration, and they should definitely be getting great services for putting a government in place.

Some Kenyans who have seen the toilet even thought it is a signpost, with others thinking it is a KPLC meter box holding area. Here are some of these hilarious reactions from twitter;
