This tweet by the British High Commissioner to Kenya has many confused
British High Commissioner to Kenya Jane Marriott left online users confused on Wednesday evening after she put up a quite controversial post on Twitter.
Ms. Marriott tweeted an image showing she was at a restaurant in the U.K. enjoying pizza, while on the side was a glass of water and a report titled: State Capture – Inside Kenya’s Inability to Fight-Corruption.
However, it is the caption accompanying the image that raised eyebrows with many wondering whether she was taking a dig at Kenya.
“Briefly back in the UK. Appreciating and enjoying a (gluten free – am coeliac) pizza, the privilege of tap water…and some Kenya reading, as the big issues continue to challenge us all,” read the caption.
Some online users wondered what the High Commissioner meant by saying she was “…enjoying the privilege of tap water…” in the UK, while others paid more attention on the report she was reading.
Here are the reactions:
Balozi is correct @RobertAlai. The normalcy of having tap water is underestimated, I lived in Lavington and our taps were often dry. And when water came, you couldn't trust its purity, damaged my LG diahwater's filter, plus if U ran a full cycle of washing clothes, you'd be lucky

Cleverly conveyed. No tap water in Kenya your mission destination.

Karibu London, a bit nippy compared to Nairobi.

This tweet is on the edge of causing a tweef, a major one even. Balozi, you might be schooled in matters terrorism – but you'll not beat #KOT in the fight that is coming. No one disses +254 and gets away with it. Good luck.

STaTE CAPtURE is the main focus people! Unfortunately many Kenyans will not see it or even bother to.

In short there is no tap water in Kenya that is fit for human consumption?
