Is there anyone as good at coming up with conspiracy theories as Kenyans?
Earlier this week, the country’s leadership organized a prayer meeting in Nairobi, aimed at dedicating the nation to God following an extended period of drought.
The event was quite emotional, with First lady Rachel Ruto, a beloved prayer warrior leading the believers in attendance in supplication on behalf of the country.
As this happened, keyboard critics were busy theorizing that the whole event was a scam.
According to them, the prayer day was coyly slated to happen towards the start of March, which is usually the onset of the long rains in the country.
Therefore, the prayer organizers were planning to attribute the rains to their prayers once the season began.
It is common knowledge that Kenyans remain unmatched in terms of creativity when it comes to online wars and memes, but it seems we have now gone overboard.
