Kenyans on Twitter (KoT) have made fun of World 800m Champion David Rudisha after a twitter gaffe that left many in stitches.
While congratulating Kenyans for the huge turnout during the just ended World IAAF under 18 championships, Rudisha wrote ‘upload’ instead of ‘applaud’.
“I upload Kenyans for breaking the record of the highest attendance ever in #wu18Nairobi2017 #50,000! Amazing Kenyan spirit in athletics,” Rudisha wrote.

This is not the first time the Olympic champion is being trolled, while appearing in a Kiwi shoe shine advert Rudisha is heard saying ‘fiatu fyangu’ instead of viatu vyangu which went on to be a house hold phrase.
Here are some reactions from Kenyans
Kwisha sasa! Kisungu kilikuja na maji kweli.
