Nairobi lion replaced after Twitter uproar
A new sculpture of a lion with a shaggy mane in the Kenyan capital Nairobi has been replaced after it got ridiculed on social media. One Twitter user pleaded: "Please guys help Sonko get a better Lion. What he has put is an embarrassment to the nation." Residents woke up on Saturday morning to find that the "Ugly lion" had been replaced with a new one, and no longer adorned with faux fur. "In the quite and chills of the night when Nairobi was deep asleep, Sonko replaced the stuffed lion with an acceptable lion statue," the tweet said. The new lion is already proving popular with foreign visitors.
