A protective measure by Muthaiga Country Club to prevent people from stealing their pencils is proving to be counterproductive.
This after a Twitter user shared a photo of the Club’s conference room pencils that are labeled; “Stolen from Muthaiga Country Club.”
Describing the club which is frequented by the upper echelons of Kenyan society as “petty”, the Tweep @shirogaitho, sarcastically asked if the club prefers to sharpen the pencils after every conference.
This sparked the same reaction from fellow Kenyans on Twitter(KOT) who all claimed that now more than ever they were inspired to want to steal those green pencils.
Here’s the tweet and the hilarious reactions:
Petty on ? These guys can’t even let you carry a pencil home? Do they sharpen them after every meeting? ??? pic.twitter.com/HzXIvQgjSZ

I would still take them with me. Much more so with that “Stolen” label.

Don’t know if it’s just me, but that is even more motivation to steal it deliberately,, coz most of the tine you just unknowingly put it in your pocket

Ask their African employees how they’re treated and you’ll understand what informed their thinking
