A revelation by American Youtuber MrBeast, that he drilled 52 boreholes in Kenya to help local communities access clean water has sparked mixed reactions from netizens. This has come amid government PR stunts of commissioning previous government’s projects which current president vehemently opposed.
MrBeast shared a 10-minute video on his YouTube channel showing him actively participating in the drilling of the boreholes, which he said was done in some parts of Kenya among them Meru County.
In the video he also said he helped build and equip classrooms with computers and furniture and vowed to build a wooden bridge he came across.
The video quickly garnered traction worldwide, with many Kenyans now turning their ridicule to Kenyan authorities for being out shined by a foreigner.
One Kenyan said MrBeast ‘has embarrassed the entire political class’ from what he has done.
