Kenya: Celebs Turn On Donald Trump Affer Obama Win

Yesterday's win by President Barack Obama saw Kenyan celebrities and personalities hit the twitterverse to give their two cents on the win and congratulate Obama on his re-election as the commander-in-chief of USA.

Here are some of the reactions on Obama's win targeted at Mitt Romney and Donald Trump. Former beauty queen Emma Too wrote: "Donald #Trump you've been trumped by all Americans, if I was u I would apologize & congratulate #Obama or pack ur bags & toupee & relocate!"

Controversial singer Kaz added, "Where is Donald Trump now?" while Suzanna Owiyo cosigned on a tweet by writing, "In fact shame on him" in response to Laura Walubengo's tweet which said, "Pole sana to Donald Trump".

DJ Protégé also had something to tweet about Trump. He wrote, "Dear Donald Trump, take that, take that, lol". Hollywood actress Olivia Wilde who visited Kenya early this year to shoot a documentary in Kibera dubbed Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women, gave her opinion on Trump.

"Real talk: this country is amazing. We take for granted a peaceful transfer of power. No tanks in the streets (unless Trump is driving)."

On Obama trouncing Romney, tweeps had a lot to say. Here are some samples.

Filmmaker Wanuri Kahiu posted on her page, "I got 99 problems but Romney ain't one" while the parody account for Franziz Atwoli, @Atwoli, added, "@BarackObama Asandi khandii.

I also apolochise for tse Kenyan who condriputed 1M tollars to tse Romney cambaign." Activist Boniface Mwangi soberly pointed out, "Kenyans are just cheer leaders of #Obama but if he was running in Kenya he would lose to a crook."

XYZ's twitter handle took the chance to market their character Mwaniki. They wrote: "Obama's Election Victory Speech DVD is now on sale..only at Mwaniki and Mwaniki Sons, River Road."
