For the occasion of a visit by Sheikh Faisal Bin Khaled, Emir of Asir province, January 11, in Majardh city, municipal workers apply a cosmetic veneer to parks. They were observed by several townspeople equipped with mobile phones.

On January 12, a day after the prince ‘s visit , officials in the city issued a statement in which they confessed colored grass. They pointed out that the material used was not regular paint, but a special paint for herbs sold in gardening shops.

But this did not prevent other citizens from complaining about other initiatives carried out by the municipal authorities hastily for the occasion of the visit of Prince.
