So yesterday we learnt that our soldiers were carrying drinking water in the paper bags they were seen taking from the Nakumatt.
Initially, KDF had maintained that no looting was carried out by its soldiers during the Westgate rescue, but when a CCTV video emerged, they admitted to ‘taking’ water.
Going by comments on social media, majority of Kenyans do not believe their theory. 76% of those who participated in an NTV poll on Tuesday night said they do not believe that the KDF only took water.
Here are some comments from Twitter.
