If You See an Insect Send it Online we Confirm Whether its a Locust- CS Kiunjuri’s Ridiculous Remarks

Kenyans are known to be savage when they smell something they term to be hilariously ridiculous.

Agriculture CS Mwangi Kiunjuri became the latest victim of a troll following remarks made of the current locust invasion in some parts of the country.

During a press briefing at Kilimo House on the latest disaster, Kiunjuri noted that social media was a vital tool in the fight against the insects.

He called upon Kenyans to take pictures of insects and share them on social media platforms for confirmation from his ministry.

“If you see any insect that you suspect could be a locust, take a picture and post on social media so we can confirm for you what insect it really is,” stated the Agriculture CS.

The statement evoked mixed reactions from netizens.

A section questioned the credibility of Kiunjuri while others took the opportunity to just make the scenario more hilarious.

Here are some of the reactions:

A netizen identified as Waithaka stated, “Kiunjuri is an idiot.”

Khalifa Tesfa uttered, “This guy is not educated. How he became a minister baffles me.”

Another netizen recognised as Kenyan Taxpayer expressed, “LOL, but why do we appoint FAILED politicians to critical positions? Mr President, this is embarrassing.

Luo KingPin remarked, “The level of imbecility in our regime is at the helm.”

Bernard Mobutu articulated, “Std4 dropouts are releasing press statement written by university graduates. What do you expect? A disaster. Maybe what he is reading is not what is written there.”

The latest narrative by the CS comes days after it was reported that the pests had invaded Meru County after causing havoc in Isiolo County.

Measures such as honking, use of tear gas and shooting in the air were used to deal with the insects before spraying with insecticides tactic was opted for.
