Nyandarua First Lady Anne Kimemia was the butt of ridicule on social media after a photo of her underwear donation to primary school pupils was shared online.
Kenyans online inquired why the First Lady made the schoolboys to hold the donated underwear and pose for photos after the donation.
The First Lady, who stood on the third row in the photo, was roundly accused of humiliating needy children.
In the photos, the boys look elated as they receive the donation of oversize underwears from Mrs Kimemia. She meticulously removes one underwear at a time from a packet and hands it over to each of the boys.
The boys are then paraded for a group photo in which they lift the underwear over their heads.
Kenyans online where aghast at the parading of the boys with the underwears.
