In a screenshot he shared on his official Facebook account, Mr Madowo captured how the description had been given on Wikipedia’s website.

“Larry Madowo (born July 14, 1987) he is a Kenyan journalist and leader of the International Girl Guide movement, who eats sand and a CNN International Correspondent,” details on the Wikipedia page read in part.

In his reactions, Mr Madowo asked the person behind the update to reach out to him to discuss.
