So, there was a solar eclipse yesterday that was to last for 3 hours from 10 am to 13:38.
However, it wasn’t to be for Kenyans, and Nairobians in particular as heavy clouds hindered visibility.
The infamous Kenyans on Twitter(KOT), however, turned the sad turn of events into a hilarious scenario.
Expressing their frustrations on the social media platform, Kenyan Twitterverse pointed accusing fingers at a number of reasons, including KFCB Boss Ezekiel Mutua, National Olympics Committee of Kenya(NOCK) among others.
Here are some of those reactions:
Nairobi is so corrupt while other city are enjoying the #solareclipse we are been charged to see it ….tafadhali toeni clouds tuone

Uhuru : My government will set up a team to investigate #SolarEclipse and make sure, it doesn’t happen again.

One day the world will be staring at the sky thinking of the eclipses, and you’ll meet the 2nd coming of Christ #solareclipse

Everytime there is #solareclipse we are told it happens once in every 100yrs, I think I’ve seen about 3 already
Happy 300th Birthday to me

So the day that we’re promised a solar eclipse is the day Nairobi is overcast? Who was in charge of this project?

@wgkantai Was about to say Ezekiel Mutua but realised that he would have approved of the naked sun been partially covered.

@wgkantai blame it on the “Cartels”. Kama NOCK, Mutunga, Waiguru and others couldn’t beat them, Sembuse sisi.

The opposition is now linking DP Ruto to the grabbing of the sun #SolarEclipse

Can’t wait for siasa ‘analysts’ to relate the #solareclipse to politics as they linked the fall of the mugumo tree prior to the elections
