Larry Madowo was killed by a certain internet poster this past week, something a not-dead Larry was left bemused by. The fan went on social media posting a picture of Larry with the message that the journalist had lost his life after suffering coronavirus.
The former NTV journalist got hold of the message and shared it on his Twitter page, stating it was exaggerated. Larry tweeted: “Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated. I was in the emergency room (ER) last week!”
The comments were very confusing as some misunderstood the message as they could not understand what was going on. This came days after he posted an image of himself being lifted into an ambulance.
It is really sad in this day and age of social media when a lie travels at light-speed. Just this past week, Lee Njiru the late former president Moi’s press secretary indicated that his boss had been “killed” 14 times before his eventual death.
Another case of a popular person being “killed” happened late last month after DJ Evolve was allegedly shot by Babu Owino at B-Club. Some reports on social media indicated that he had passed on from the bullet wounds he sustained-something that was found to be false later on.
