Nairobi - The banana frenzy which was born after Dani Alves, the
Barcelona footballer ate a banana that was thrown on the pitch during one of
the Spanish La Liga matches last week, has caught on in Kenya too.
footballer was about to take a corner kick when a banana
was thrown onto the football pitch. He then picked it up, skinned and ate it
and proceeded with taking the corner kick, paying no attention to the racist
gesture attached to it. His actions sparked a serious no racism campaign which
saw people take pictures eating bananas like he did.

has gone viral on the social media platforms and thousands are showing their
