1. Boys Club – The Boys Club story continues to trend and it has gotten bad for Jalang’o and Diana Bahati. Most people continue to ridicule Jalang’o’s Boys Club and to harshly criticize him and his friends for their immorality. This is despite a post released by Jalang’o that tells his side of the story. In the post, he explains that the WhatsApp screenshots have been maliciously taken out of context. He adds that Edgar Obare has, for some time now, been keen to spin stories painting Jalang’o in an evil light. Meanwhile, Diana Marua and Bahati continue to be the subject of cruel ridicule. A few people are criticizing Edgar Obare and hope that he is happy after wrecking lives. Others continue to praise him for “exposing immorality”

3. Foreign Aid Looters – Once again, it becomes clear as day that our government is corrupt beyond measure. The Daily Nation reports that 328 billion, out of foreign aid money that was to help us, has been stashed abroad by our dear politicans. Kenyans took to twitter to sing the Corruption song that has become second nature to us. Here’s what will happen: We’ll sing ourselves hoarse, the government will throw some quality political drama our way – I can bet that Ruto will be at the center of it, and we’ll forget. Only to start the song again one or two months from now when hundreds of billions have been stolen again. After all, as Moses Kuria said, it is our constitutional right to be stupid.
4. Atwoli – Kenyans seem to unanimously echo Ahmednasir’s comments on COTU Sec Gen Atwoli. Ahmednasir thinks that Atwoli is illiterate and is in no position to be advising the President.
