‘You Hate our food? Cook yours,’ Kenyans to Bob Collymore

'You Hate our food? Cook yours,' Kenyans to Bob Collymore

Kenyans on social media are at it again, and this time Safaricom CEO Bob Collymore is the subject of their angry posts.

It all started when the telco giant’s boss shared his personal view about Kenyan cuisine during a one-on-one interview on a local station. When asked what his favorite food is, he divulged that he does not like Kenyan food.

“Let me just be up front about it because you accuse me of saying Kenya is my favorite country because I am here. Actually, I don’t like Kenyan food very much-which is part of my honesty,” Collymore said.

His comment didn’t go down well with Kenyans on social media who have been known to be fiercely patriotic. Nigeria, Uganda and South Africa have faced the wrath of KOT after ‘offensive’ remarks about Kenya.

As the 46-second video went viral, social media users  they expressed their anger in a flurry of tweets and posts. Below are some comments from the discussion:

 ‏@Wakigogoine  Whats out of order for Bob Collymore saying he doesnt like Kenyan food? I dont like Chinese food, I dont like Rwandan food either

James Mwangi You don’t have to like the food sir, just endure. We also don’t love Safaricom, we endure.. Its more painful than the food you hate which we adore.

Rasheed Rai Jr. Come on guys…do u like every food on earth? Well I bet not. So Bob Collymore doesn’t like Kenyan food…that’s his opinion and he is entitled to it…same way you’re entitled to your opinions on other foods that you don’t like.

  1. why are you complaining yet when most kenyans will say i like italian oh chinesw sijuia what
