Why did grandma cover woman?

Shared by Facebook user Wahome Thuku, the grandmother reportedly covered the woman with a leso for being 'indecent' during her visit upcountry.

"Wafunike kabisa cucu. Tumejaribu, tumeshindwa. Reminds me of an old lady who asked me why I was letting my daughter go out with worn-out trousers. She wondered if my family was in such a big financial hardship," captioned Thuku.

In the undated photos of a village, the two women can be seen relaxing over a cup of tea outside a home.

The bemused grandmother, visibly troubled by the woman's choice of dress, takes action.

She can be seen pointing at the 'torn' spots and ragged holes exposing the lady's thighs and knees.

As the grandmother wraps the leso around her waist, the woman, who has now put down her cup of tea, laughs.

Thuku's post was met with cheers from his followers, who lauded the grandmother for not letting fashion come in the way of decency and culture.

"A very good cucu. She had to stand up and cover up the girl properly, then sit down. Even after sitting down, she had to ensure that the leso was still covering up properly," reacted one.

"Courtesy demands that you respect the host's culture. The girl should have dressed well per the grandmother's customs, then reverted to her fashionable dress elsewhere. Grandmothers are not demanding, and we don't visit them daily, so it is a small sacrifice. My two cents," opined Snowie Snow.

"Beautiful cucu right there. These girls can be too much."

Andrew Muiga added:

"The ancient lady is wondering what the world has come to. Nobody else apart from her late husband has ever had a glimpse of her thighs in her 99 years on Earth. But even the late husband never saw them clearly..."

Queen Pascaliah commented:

"But why should a whole grownup put on such a trouser? Nonsense."
