Kenyans on twitter have made fun of Tourism CS Najib Balala after Magical Kenya a group that promotes tourism posted that he launched the Wildebeest which occurs naturally every year.
They accused him of wasting public funds launching a natural migration immediately after the death of the 11 rhinos that were translocated to the Tsavo.
Most Kenyans attacked the cabinet secretary saying that he was not qualified for the job. They said that he was hired because he came from a tourism destination and for his good looks and not intellect.
They have urged the tourism ministry to restrategize and rebrand as they have already had two scandals within a short span of time.
Here are some of the tweets:
