Airport authorities in Kenya have come under intense public backlash over a Christmas tree erected at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.

Described as laughable, the tree was mounted in one of the lawns at the airport to mark the festive period. Not only are Kenyans unimpressed with the Christmas tree, social media users have also called it “embarrassing”, as the J.K.I.A is one of the busiest and biggest in East Africa.

A host of Twitter users have also alleged that the cash allocation for the tree has been misappropriated in the light of recent corruption cases in the country.

According to the  Kenya Civil Aviation Authority, Jomo Kenyatta International Airport is the largest in East Africa and serves about 11 million passengers annually.
