The second season of Narcos is out, and I’m pretty everyone has watched, whether via illegal DVDs or on Netflix.

As you know, the focus is on Pablo Escobar – the leader of Medellin Cartel and the wealthiest drug dealer in history who at his prime was worth $30 billion. In today’s rankings, he would be number 7 on Forbes list.

Someone drew comparisons with Kenya and made this poster which has gone viral on social media.


The motivation behind the Photoshopped image is unclear. Is it because of his growing influence in Kenya’s politics, or is it because of his long rumoured, (but never proven) involvement in narcos?
