This Kenyan begged BBC to replace a ‘wrong’ photo and got perfect response

A Kenyan on Twitter lit up excitement after he begged BBC to use a photoshopped picture that showed the president’s red carpet being delivered by a sports utility vehicle.

It all started when BBC Africa on Friday tweeted a picture on the delivery of the red carpet at the Bomas of Kenya, where IEBC was set to announce the winner of the presidential results.

But there was a problem – at least according to Twitter user @droid254.

The carpet was delivered in an ageing pick-up that did not “befit” the occasion and the goods it was carrying.

So Droid decided to fix it, and fix it he did.

He photoshopped the vehicle to show the carpet had been delivered by the latest model of Toyota Hilux and begged BBC to use it instead.

The British broadcaster took the humour and “changed” the picture, albeit showing before and after.

Kenyans on Twitter loved the banter. Here are some of their reactions.
