Social media ‘nutritionists’ explain why it’s ‘OK’ to donate beer to starving Kenyans

The beer donation by a Chinese company to Baringo residents has excited Kenyans online.

Users instantly turned into nutrition experts explaining the benefits of beer to starving human beings.

In the reactions, some users seemed to share similar sentiments as those expressed by Baringo residents after the donation that getting high would help them forget their troubles.
