This Christmas tree in Kenya is being ridiculed for 'resembling a tent'

The tree is said to have cost a whopping Sh5 million.

Kenyans have taken to social media to mock a Christmas tree unveiled in a county in the country's Rift Valley region.

The Christmas tree, launched by Nakuru county governor Lee Kinyanjui, has been mocked for resembling a tent. This despite the fact that it cost the county Sh5 million to set it up.

Most Kenyans termed it a misplaced priority with others seeing it as an ugly edifice adding no value to the county.

However, a number of other netizens saw no wrongdoing in the tree saying it was a work of art.

“Ours is a unique kind of Christmas tree unlike any other. It shows creativity and those calling it names should instead look at the creative side,” noted another Kenyan.
