Kenyans angered by violence claim
Kenyans came to Twitter in their numbers this weekend, to lash out at CNN for an article claiming violence had erupted in Nairobi.
The trending Twitter stream with the hashtag #SomeoneTellCNN grew lengthier by the minute as Kenyans complained about a CNN banner reading “Violence in Kenya”.
The banner had referred to an article about a grenade attack that killed six people at a bus station on Saturday.
Kenyans argued that the grenade attack was an act of terrorism, while they felt the CNN report implied that Nairobi was a city in chaos. David McKenzie, the journalist responsible for the report, has since apologized on Twitter, but the angry tweets show no signs of abating.
