This voter in Kenya had a message for President Kenyatta on the ballot paper

Spoilt vote.

A photo showing a Kenyan voter with a rather interesting message on his ballot paper has gone viral.

Kenyanstook to the polls on Thursday to cast their votes in the country's divisive Presidential repeat poll.

It is a requirement that a voter marks a ballot paper using a cross or a tick within the space provided containing the name of the Candidate for whom he/she intends to vote process in any election is quite simple.

But this voter took it a notch higher and decided to jot down a message instead of marking the ballot paper as required.

In the photo, the unidentified voter goes on to write "Mans Not Hot" in the space provided for Jubilee Party presidential candidate Uhuru Kenyatta.

The photo created a buzz online with a number of Kenyans reckoning that it was already a spoilt vote whereas others wondered whether he literally meant what he wrote.

The phrase "Mans Not Hot" originated with comedian Michael Dapaah’s appearance on BBC Radio 1xtra’s “Fire in the Booth” program.

Dapaah, who performs as Roadman Shaq, became famous for his rap best known for lines such as "the ting goes skrrrrrra pa pa kakaka."
