Kenyans on twitter reacted differently after NASA strategist David Ndii renounced his Kikuyu tribe on twitter and crossing to the Luo community. “Dear Uthamaki, I’ve had enough of appeal to ethnic solidarity. I hereby renounce my Gikuyu citizenship. Consider me a Jaluo and let me be,” read the tweet.
Dear #uthamaki I’ve had enough of appeal to ethnic solidarity. I hereby renounce my Gikuyu citizenship. Consider me a Jaluo and let me be.

The tweet was received with both positive and negative comments with negatives seemingly be more. Here are some of the hillarious reactions.
Prof. David Ndii has opened Debate on belonging to a tribe & we must engage in civilized conversation about it. There is NO ONE COUNTRY that has succeeded on building blocks of Tribalism. Whether in True Democracies or Benevolent Dictatorship, tribe doesn’t give one advantage.

We acknowledge your generosity, however wish to unequivocally decline the offer since we already have enough of that kind and we are ourselves looking 4 countries willing to have them. The only people we would accept are Otiende Omollo, James Orengo, Ken Okoth and Lupita Thiong’o

We, the people of Nyakach have received the news of @DavidNdii renouncement of his Gikuyu citizenship with excitement. We officially welcome him to join the great people of Nyakach as one of the sons of the soil. He will officially name him Hezekiah Ochuka.
