Yesterday, it was announced that newspapers will cost Sh60 up from Sh50 starting today. This is as a result of the VAT bill taking effect.
The whole day Tuesday, the hash tag #Gazetiya60 was trending, as Kenyans humorously explored reasons why a newspaper would cost that expensive.
The irony in all that was the fact that most of those participating are in the generation that gets all their news from Twitter.
Below are a few hilarious tweets.
