When I first heard the Westgate mall was under siege, I was at the Storymoja Hay festival. To be real it begun as a rumor that it had been a robbery gone wrong and there was gunfire exchange…bla bla bla.

Someone went further to joke that goons with guns had gone to Westgate to steal milk! (Kenyan joke that one. Not so funny right now) but we laughed it off and the festival continued. There were only two ways it could end- the goons will be caught and shot on sight or they’d be super smart and run off with whatever they’d robbed. Not much to look forward to.

Then hours later, there was a buzz about a popular radio host having died at the shootout and then it became a case of rumors gone too far! Everyone knows how crazy Kenyans on twitter and fb can get with rumors.
