Kenyans on Facebook have been largely ignored due to the rise of Kenyans on Twitter.

Thus the media goes with the platforms whose statistics are easy to come by.

People were wondering why his trousers look ‘off’, with some calling for his wife Susan to apologise.

I wouldn’t claim to know what went wrong, but I think the Governor should start hitting the gym.
