Saturday, May 30, 2020 – An unknown Kenyan from Nyeri by the name Alex Ndiritu is trending worldwide after his tweet about the ongoing protests in the US over the killing of yet another unarmed black American by a white police officer, went viral.
Ndiritu called on black Americans protesting the murder of George Floyd, who died after a white cop choked him to death by kneeling on his neck for close to six minutes, to burn down the white house.
His tweet quickly went viral with concerned Americanstagging the CIA, the FBI and the Secret Service.
Popular comedian and actor Terrence Williams reposted the post and called on the American security agencies to be on the lookout.
“THEY ARE THREATENING TO BURN DOWN THE WHITE HOUSE! We must Protect President Trump and his Administration. All threats must be taken seriously. Please RT to inform the FBI, Secret Service and the CIA,” Terrence wrote on Twitter.
However, he later dismissed the post as a mere troll after he realized the author is a Kenyan hailing from Nyeri.
“Yea someone trolling in a remote village in Kenya has to be taken seriously. “The comedian added.
While it seemed like a joke, it appears the protestors took his message seriously and attempted to raid the White House.
Kenyans have had a field day reacting to the development with some hailing Nderitu for leading the protests from his humble village in Nyeri.
