While service delivery seems to be a problem across Africa, Kenyans think their governor took it too far with this ‘disaster’ of a bridge.

Kenyan Twitter dominated social media on Wednesday following a picture of governor Alfred Mutua inspecting a bridge he built for the people of Machakos County.

The pictures were shared by South African parody account @AdvBarryRoux with the caption: “Meanwhile, Kenya Governor Mutua launching a $6 million bridge. In my country bridges like this one are built by Nyoape boys to help us pedestrians cross to the other side of the mud.”
