Social media users have been sent into disarray and confusion over a photo that has gone viral of two inmates and two beauty queens.
The photo shows Miss World Kenya- Nyamira County and Miss World Kenya- Siaya County posing next to two female inmates locked up in Lang’ata Women’s Prison. The beauty queens had visited the correctional facility on International Women’s Day.
Social media users have pointed out that the inmates are more beautiful than the beauty queens, perhaps because of their lighter complexion. We will let you decide!
One of the inmates is believed to be Ms Ruth Wanjiku Kamende, who shocked the country last year after she stabbed her lover 22 times in Buruburu.
She’s the one on the far left with the killer smile or if you like, a smile to die for!! (both puns intended).
Here are some reactions from some Facebook users
