    Meme goes viral in Kenya Twitter
  • The origin of a meme that has intrigued Kenyans on social media has remained a mystery to many.

    The mimi cartoon has caused a buzz online for a week now with even local brands jumping in to ride on the newest trend.

    Where did the Meme Come From?

    The cartoon in the meme is a character dubbed Saitama, a superhero in a series identified as One Punch Man. Though his original name is Caped Baldy, the cartoon prefers Saitama because he dislikes his bald head.

    According to the story line, Saitama is tasked to defend a city identified as Z-City against mysterious beings, who he takes out with only one punch.

    He is also an indifferent character who is totally bored with his heroic work because he seems to be defeating all the villains.

    The scene which went viral is Kenya captures Saitama posing with his hand on his chest and his head angled on the side portraying the look people give when they are defending themselves.

    The memes were used to mock the Jubilee administration for seemingly not fulfilling the agendas of its manifesto.

    Others used it to criticise African leaders who have refused to retire.

    Brands took the opportunity to advertise their products and defend themselves against public perception.

    Here are other hilarious memes:
