The Kenyan online community is always busy. With school closed, the online community have taken it upon themselves to ensure that teenagers who post inappropriate content are exposed and ‘reported’ to their parents.
Kenyans on Twitter (KOT) have come up with a trend, #IfikieWazazi, to publicly shame adolescents sharing nasty pictures on social media.
The trend was started after a young unidentified girl shared a video on Twitter blasting critics who take issues with ladies posting semi-nude pictures.
The young lass argues, in the video, that young ladies should be permitted to dress whichever way they desire:

From Lotodo to Pkosing, Pokot leaders plead their innocence

Talkin’ about stupid aims????????????????????#ifikiewazazi pic.twitter.com/OVfLp5Kl2A — ?τHΣ ?υFFI? ?Δ?? (@__Daydream3r__) April 11, 2018
The video went viral with the #Ifikiewazazi hashtag turning it into a campaign to expose young girls and boys posting inappropriate pictures on the internet.
With pseudo accounts being the order of the day, teenagers are known to be sharing obscene videos and pictures of themselves anonymously as they attempt to keep them from their parents. #IfikieWazazi aims to break the walls of anonymity and expose the teenagers to their parents and guardians.
Here are some of the trending reactions under the hashtag:
