Kenyans on social media have been left shocked and scared after photos surfaced of a cobra curled in a toilet bowl in Nyayo Estate.
It is alleged that Mr Wanjohi, an ICT specialist found the reptile staring right back at him when he went to relieve himself.
“Believe it or not, Mr. Wanjohi, Specialist – Information Communication & Technology Management, found a snake in his toilet in Embakasi Nyayo Estate not very long ago, so it’s not strange that snakes swim along the sewer lines and end up in the toilet bowl. It’s by God’s grace that his toilet pan was closed, otherwise God knows what would have befallen to them. And as he lifted the pan, he saw the snake and closed it right back (unlike those of us who enter the toilet backwards, taking it for granted the course is clear!!!). After calling for help which came between 5 – 10 minutes later, the snake had slid through the lid and was coiled on the toilet mat on the floor. It must have been fatigued by the struggle of climbing the slippery toilet bowl so it just lay coiled and didn’t move. It was killed right there on the toilet floor. Beware!!! Always make sure the pan is closed when you go to bed lest wild life gets into your bedrooms, always switch the light on when going into the loo, and lastly but not the least make sure there is nothing in the bowl before you use the toilet. Never sit, before looking properly.”
However, the story’s authenticity has been greatly questioned. First, I have been to a Nyayo Estate toilet and it is not that small and second, the story must have been lifted from India where such an incident happened last year.
We dug deep and found a video from back in 2009 that was made using the photos above.
As scared as you might be, poop easy and go on about your ‘business’ as usual whether you enter the toilet backwards or not.
