Kenya: KoT Roast BBC Over Headline on New Coins

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!!"
