, NAIROBI, Kenya, Nov 8- They are known as the Kenyans on Twitter and whose power cannot be disputed.
They have ‘impeached’ the untouchables and even ‘hijacked’ debates even if they are not Kenyan in nature say the United States elections.
On Tuesday, the #USADecides hash tag was the top most trend, where Kenyans of all walks joined in drumming support for their preferred candidates.
It was either team Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton , now that our very own President Barrack Obama- by the mere fact that he has Kenyan roots- term is in its last days.
And for some, they claimed to express their opinion on behalf of the African Continent.
Others, whether jokingly or serious, want Trump to win so that he can deport their relatives who have stayed in the US for ages without visiting home but are always present on social media.
Here are some of the sentiments as tweeted;
#USADecides“Trump please win and deport my UNCLE who has been in the US 4 20yrs without communication but always active on FACEBOOK”

For some, Kenyans should focus on their own issues probably fighting graft;
Can’t believe this #USADecides is trending when we have our own system to clean….hope to learn something from them, if there is anything
