Kenyans on Twitter have shown how freedom of expression and that of media can be misused if not controlled. Kenyans are known for spreading rumors and fake news which can be interpreted to be true. It is sad and shocking to learn that Kenyans on Twitter killed The third President of the Republic of Kenya His Excellency Mwai Kibaki and put his living body into a mortuary. The messages were sent after heavy security guards were spotted at the mortuary some claiming that the President passed on at 5 am. However, Jimmy Kibaki has dismissed the fake news elaborating that his dad is okay and healthy.
This is not the first time Kenyans are circulating fake news and rumors which have left many in a somber mood. Kenyans had also talked about Tanzanian President John Pombe Magufuli's sickness which took him to Nairobi to seek medical attention. Unfortunately, the news was dismissed by Tanzania officials. Kenya should learn to use social media positively. We wish Mzee Kibaki long life.
