Kenya: KoT Roast BBC Over Headline on New Coins

13 December 2018

The British Broadcasting Corporation thinks that Kenya replaced leaders with animals on its new generation coins and Kenyans don't like it.

In a headline published Tuesday, BBC said "Kenya money coins replace leaders with animals".

That did not go well with Kenyans on Twitter.

Waiyaki‏ @Waiyaki_254; "Yes... Animals behave better than our leaders."

David West‏ @arsenalcode; "May the currency not decline in value the way we are are letting these animals decline in numbers, to near extinction."

Douglas Mwale‏ @douglas_mwale; "BBC have some respect. @LarryMadowo see what your employer is saying about your country."

Titus Muema‏ @MuemaTitus; "@BBCAfrica ,the headline is made to disrespect Kenyans,you must stop cilly colonial tendencies and attitudes towards Africans #Kenyan resist BBC media."

Capt. Onyango ✡‏ @NotJustOkVC; "That's what hurts us... .TRUTH!!"
