Kenyans React To Zuckerberg’s Visit

Mark Zuckerberg, the founder, and CEO of Facebook visited Kenya in a bid to meet with entrepreneurs and developers. The main focus of his visit was, of course, to learn more about mobile money. Kenya is the world leader when it comes to mobile money.

Zuckerberg had lunch with Joseph Mucheru, the Cabinet Secretary for Information and Communications. According to Mark’s post on Facebook, they discussed “internet access and his ambitious plans for connecting everyone in Kenya.”

Mark’s visit is aptly summed up by NTV’s video:

As always, Kenyans took to social media with various reactions to the Facebook founder’s visit as only Kenyans can.

Kenyans have a knack for focusing on all the wrong things.
