First it was businessman Chris Kirubi, Safaricom CEO Bob Collymore then followed, now another Kenyan has refused to meet Obama… it seems this is the in-thing. 

Last night, Tusker Project Fame no nonsense judge Ian Mbugua updated this on his Facebook page.

Due to a rather heavy work I, too, will not be meeting with president Obama in Dar

Some of his fans were quick to realise he was not serious, but a good number weren’t. These were some of the comments.

This morning, the good judge revealed to his slow fans that it was all a joke.

Goodmorning! My last post made me realise there are hordes of Kenyans without a sense of humour. How sad! It’s never that serious
