A few days back, it was announced that the government of Kenya had tapped into the celebrity of Uganda’s Eddy Kenzo to be it’s brand ambassador and Kenyans went nuts!
No one cared for a rhyme or reason, they just wanted Eddy Kenzo gone. Among the celebrities that took part in this verbal onslaught was none other than King Kaka. He got deep into his feelings and then exploded with this message:
“Ati Eddy Kenzo who is Ugandan is The Kenya Tourism Ambassador, acha tungoje Beyonce akuje aimbe National anthem yetu. Let me grab my popcorns this is a movie a very funny movie. Ufala. Si wapatie Nameless ama Wyre ama Mkenya random kwa streets. How about the whole Rugby Team who have been doing soo much to raise our flag high, I am sure ata hajui independence yetu Ni lini ata nimeenda mbali, ata colours za flag yetu. Ufala. Kesho kesho Vice President atatolewa Zimbabwe,”
And when the dust had settled, he realized he might have burnt more than afew bridges so what he did was to look for the proverbial cats paw (scape goat) and he found it in the form of bloggers:
“Congratulations to Eddy Kenzo on his new partnership with The Kenya Tourism Board. Actually the misunderstanding came with the title from bloggers , the campaign that Eddy Kenzo is headlining is titled #TugendeKenya which means lets to go to Kenya (if my Luganda serves me right) it’s telling Ugandans to come to Kenya to Explore (which to me that has more economic gain to Kenya as a Country ) I deeply apologize for my earlier post which I have taken down. Yoh Eddy Tugende Kenya and Asante Kenya Tourism Board on this partnership,”
