'Unleash the Kenyan in you and collect it!' Netizens beg Larry Madowo after referring to TV as trash

Piece by: Caren Nyota

Larry Madowo is living large. The BBC presenter, who's currently staying in New York City shared a photo of garbage dumped on the streets that included a Tv and captioned it;

Trash outside my apartment. This New York will show me things.

This didn't go well with Kenyans on social media and in return, they advised him to be a 'real Kenyan and take the TV inside his house'. Others advised him to take it and sell it as second hand back home.

Okew Osimbo Larry if you truly know what New York is then you can’t pick that. Sometimes they be stolen stuff. Be very careful because you never know who is watching.

Barbara Waigwe Take it and see the police on your doorstep. It might be stolen and thrown there.
