It’s unfortunate what people are willing to do to drag your name into the mud,” wrote Suzanna Owiyo.
We are a hating Nation
Huddah Monroe also expressed her thought about Suzanna Owiyo’s accident. She Kenyans have a habit of hating on everything without considering the feelings of the people involved.
“Kenyans are enemies of progress. It’s just sad that people rejoice at others misfortunes and downfalls. They get so happy to even spread malicious rumors of why what happened not knowing what will happen to them in the future. We saw it with Chris Kirubis photos. We are a hating Nation. God help us get out of this darkness. Glad you are okay mom. Be blessed always,” wrote Huddah Monroe.
