The Chinese billboard that was pulled down at Bellevue area, along Mombasa Road has been erected again.
This time near Imara Daima area but with a change that has the text complete with English translations.
The billboard was put up by a Chinese company that was advertising its services that included road construction.
Its original design had all the content written in Chinese, a goof that provoked an online protest.
A day after the protests the billboard was pulled down leaving a part of it tattered and hanging as if vandalized.
The company has now put up a similar advertisement but this time included translation of what it was all about.
Here is the initial tweet that caused the uproar.
This is a billboard in Kenya done completely in Chinese. My only question is, will you be allowed to erect a Swahili billboard in the middle of Beijing? Chinese are taking us for a ride. They must be rudely roaming around Nairobi while inwardly thinking we are idiots pic.twitter.com/HcdaxRps5v
