Uhuru’s niece comes to Kobi Kihara’s rescue after Twitter Trolls


Kobi was trending in Kenya at number one under the hashtag #KobiKiharaChallenge for stealing a salad photo from Pinterest and posting it on her Instagram, claiming that she had made it herself.

The TV presenter went as far as giving one of her fans the recipe and advising them on where to get some of the ingredients she had used in Nairobi.

Nonetheless, this did not go so well as hawk-eyed Kenyans led by kISS 100 radio show host Shaffie Weru pinpointed that it was not an original snap.

After Kihara was trolled for hours, Nana joined in to defend her. In a post, the KICC CEO told Kihara that she was well able to make the salad.

"Given your eye for detail, I am sure you can replicate no problem. I will confirm when I come to visit your stateside. Hope you are will though and keep up the great work with your studies now that is all you and very impressive," Nana said.

Popular blogger Dennis Itumbi also showed his support for Kihara stating: "Dear , memorize this tweet. When you see and read this hashtag , shake your collar, take enough photos, do not argue or explain.

"Just smile and look for a dance floor. It is never that serious. From a brother who has faced this enough times."

At the same time, others opined that despite the mistake Kihara could have made, the hashtag was mere cyberbullying.

"She has been busted faking it on IG, Fine. But that's where it should have ended. Starting a hashtag to kick her further isn't cool. It's cyberbullying...fake pics already means she has selfesteem issues, imagine what the hashtag will do to her. Tuwe na Utu," one tweep said.
