On Sunday last week, Kenyans woke to the news that Madonna was in the country. This was after she tweeted & Facebooked a “Good Morning Kenya” photo of countryside that looked distinctly Kenyan.

Kenyans online being their usual funny selves started asking whether she had come to adopt a child. @RonohKechem even offered Jimmy Gait for adoption, must have been due to his latest song ” Yesu ndiye sponsor”. 

Things to a turn for the worse when she tweeted a photo taken with Samburu morans where she indicated that she was in the Kikuyu Valley in Samburu. This is when KOT responded in not so kind words that there was no such thing as Kikuyu Valley in Samburu. Understandably geography was a boring subject to many as such the thinking was that she did not know what she was saying. 

Here are some of the responses from KOT.

However, KOT have been forced to eat humble pie after it was revealed by William Mengo that there exists such a valley which is refered to as “Soito elKokoyo” which apparently translates to Valley of Kikuyu stones.

I hope this serves as a lesson to the keyboard warriors on the need to research before sending out tweets.
