Kenyans online were left in shock after architect revealed he was inspired by the shape of a donkey’s penis to design the most iconic building in the country – Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC).
In an interview with Citizen TV, Kenya’s first African Chief Architect David Mutiso explained that founding president was thrilled by the final design of the 28-storey building after rejecting several designs presented to him.
“They wanted to build a headquarter for KANU. We started sketching, initially it was a simple four-storey building, it evolved with time. Every time we showed the President, he asked us to go higher,” said David Mutiso.
Kenyans on Twitter quickly poked fun at the icon building following Mutiso’s baffling revelation. See some of the reactions below:
