Lions on the loose in Nairobi: Kenyan reactions

Nairobi, Kenya is home to the Nairobi National Park, and aptly named ‘the world’s wildlife capital’ – the only city in the world that has a National Park.

Friday, 19 February 2016

Six lions stray from the Park into the adjacent, Langata neighbourhood.  The Kenya Wildlife Service send out a message asking any one who has spotted the lions to call a toll free no. Kenyans get online and after a few minutes hilarious posts and memes start circulating.

I think Kenyans are the most hilarious and creative people on the planet. Here is a list of some of those rib crackers.

  1. With the caption “Seen near Simba Saloon”. Simba Saloon is a restaurant. Simba =lion in Swahili

8. This  promotes a local show which showcases Kenya’s wildlife. Translation of Swahili text: Do not pressure us, we have gone for the rehearsal for  NTV wild(name of show) tomorrow.
