Social media was put ablaze by radio presenter, Maina Kageni after he shared a photo of apartments with clothes on hanging line covered with polythene papers.
It might be a familiar thing with many people living within Nairobi but to some, the photo came as a surprise since they have never seen such conduct before.
Posing the challenge, Maina asked; “Very few of us will truly understand the purpose of covering laundry this way when putting it out to dry. Are you one of them? …if yes, then tell me.”
This welcomed different and hilarious responses from Kenyans. Apart from preventing the clothes from being soiled by those of the neighbors, it was said that the idea of covering the laundry was also a way of keeping them safe from thieves.
