“Kenyans were born to be thieves, stealing is in their blood!” Mugabe verbally attacks Kenyans
On Wednesday, a Kenyan blog going by the name , “The Spectator”, published an article about Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe.
It said he had made defamatory comments towards the Kenyan public – although the report has now been discredited.
In fact, there’s no actual evidence President Mugabe said any such thing.
According to the article on “The Spectator” blog:
While presiding over a funds drive in a city church on Sunday, Mugabe said that Kenyans are the most arrogant thieves in the world as they steal with a high degree impunity.
“Those people of East Africa shock me with their wizardry in stealing. Sometimes I tend to believe that stealing is in every Kenyan’s blood.These people go to their schools and read good courses but they qualify as the best thieves. You can even think that there is a subject in their universities called Bachelor of Stealing. Whenever they get an opportunity as employees, they never disappoint.They steal enough money to buy their freedom because even the judges who listen to their cases are financially powerless. I urge you my people to be on high alert in case you by bad luck, happen to visit that East African nation. They might infect you with that disease and we don’t want it here.Zimbabweans are honest people who love their country and don’t want such stealing tendencies ” He shouted with courage as he advised his nation.
Despite the story being fake, offended and outraged,Kenyans on Twitter – led a barrage of verbal attacks against Zimbabweans using the tag “Kenyans vs Zimbabweans”.
It was tweeted over 9,000 times accompanied by hillarious memes poking fun at Zimbambwe’s failing economy.
