Kenya Election

This year’s election has been characterised by tribalism, hooliganism, hatred, hate speech among other vile things. On 26th October, Kenya held a re-election after the August 8th presidential election was nullified but all didn’t go as expected.

Very few voters turned up for the re-election compared to August 8th’s and violence has been witnessed in various parts of the country especially in the capital city, Nairobi since.

A twitter username by the name Nanjala Nyabola took to social media to ask Kenyans to write a romance novel based on the 2017 election and the reactions were hilarious.

“Someone please write a romance novel based on the 2017 Kenyan election. Please – do it for the culture,” read Nanjala’s tweet.

Check out the reactions;
