Chinese billboard on Mombasa Road vandalised after uproar

A Chinese-written billboard erected along Mombasa Road has been vandalised after public outcry.

The billboard, entirely written in Chinese, belonged to a Chinese company that was advertising its services to fellow Chinese.

Kenyans online lashed at the advertising agency that allowed the company to publish an entire billboard in a foreign language, demanding that an English translation be included as well.

Some however defended the billboard, arguing that since it was targeting the Chinese – and considering it was not insulting or inciting – there was no harm.

By Tuesday morning, the billboard seemed to have been vandalised with a part of it hanging loose.
