Kenyans go berserk after Bayern Munich joined them in celebrating independence day

It was a rare spectacle.

Kenyan football fans on Tuesday got a rather rare message from German football club Bayern Munich as the country marked its 54th Jamhuri Day celebrations.

The German Bundesliga Champions, through a Facebook post, wished Kenyans a "Happy Jamhuri Day"—a day meant to officially mark the date of Kenya's independence.

And as the football club recognized the country's independence day, Kenyans online could not contain their excitement as depicted by their reactions below:
