#SomeonetellKagame: Why Kenyans are unhappy with Kagame

11 August 2015, 18:35 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Kenyans are unhappy with Rwandese President Paul Kagame to the extent they have come up with a Twitter hash-tag. But why?

Kagame, who has been listed as one of Africa’s top leaders on Twitter, took to social media to thank “The tireless legal team, friends and the unbreakable Rwandan spirit.”

This was in reference to the impending change in the Constitution to allow him contest the presidency for a third term.

His tweet though, was not well taken by a Kenyan, Levi Kones, who accused Kagame of killing his so far very good legacy.

" I really hope sir, you will not ruin your legacy by being President for life, Kones tweeted, a response that was not well taken by Kagame who replied arrogantly.

" Worry more about your own legacy .. If you got any at all to think about!!

The response was not received by Kenyans who got back at Kagame with the hash-tag #SomeoneTellKagame.

The hash-tag follows a similar one that Kenyans started a few weeks ago to come down hard on news network CNN after they labelled Kenya one of the most dangerous countries in the world prior to the visit to the country by US President Barack Obama. It was labelled #someonetellCNN.

Here are a few tweets form the hashtag.

@makodingo: #someonetellkagame that what a young Rwandan cannot tweet for fear of reprisal will be tweeted by a young Kenyan. We are in it together.

@victormatata: #someonetellkagame that we will send Mollis to visit his daughter.

@revimfisi : #someonetellkagame You don't disrespect a member of the KOT and get away with it. Never.

@arnoldwings : #someonetellkagame That the presidency is not marriage where its "untill death do us part".Serve your term and let others also serve.

@josenuzaj : #someonetellkagame That Kenyans do not worship tyrants & lifetime presidents. We tell you the naked truth. We do not have time 4 dictators.
