This has been a very busy week for Kenyans as we just concluded the country’s General Elections that was held yesterday. Kenyans have been commenting about the elections, from their experience during voting and checking out the events that were happening on social media.

In the last 48 hours, the timelines in our social media feeds have been inundated with people eagerly waiting for the results and political opinions. The feed has become monotonous with such content and gladly we have our comic relief.

During the polling process, one photo of a man eating githeri (githeri, a Kenyan dish is a mix of maize and beans) was shared on Twitter and it was quite iconic.

The guy decided to snack on his githeri while queueing to vote and this photo was quickly turned by Twitter users into a Photoshop battle and it is hilarious!
