Kenyans online are curious to see who will emulate South Africa’s Julius Malema and tell off fake mourners at Kenneth Matiba’s funeral.
Kenyans called out sympathisers of the Kanu administration for sending condolence messages after the death of the multi-party champion.
Some even recommended NRM self-declared general Miguna Miguna to take up the Malema role, saying he was best suited to tell off the fake mourners.
Malema had at the burial of anti-apartheid icon Winnie Mandela called out the people who distanced themselves from Mrs Mandela during her tribulations, accusing them of crying crocodile tears at her funeral.
His poetic speech repeatedly asking Mama to give him a sign on how to treat her oppressors went viral.
Now Kenyans are hunting for a local Malema to tell off those who oppressed Matiba as he fought for multi-party democracy.
At Winnie Mandela's funeral, Julius Malema said 'they are here mama'..
At #KennethMatiba 's funeral, I am waiting for the hero who will say 'Wako Hapa kwa mazishi yako. Wanajifanya ndio wanalia zaidi. Wako Hapa Matiba, Wako Hapa. They are here. We can see them. Give us a sign.

Julius Malema's speech should be played back at Matiba's funeral. Just Replace Mama with Papa. #RIPMatiba

Nobody in the current crop of leadership can pull a perfect match of Julius Malema during send off of Kenneth Matiba other than @MigunaMiguna. The despots, lords of impunity must be blatantly told off. #JuliusMalemaChallenge #RIPMATIBA

In the words of Julius Malema, Baba (Kenneth Matiba) even those who fought you, those who tried to kill you, those who caused you this pain are sending their messages of good will.
We can see their crocodile tears Baba, they are waiting to ware suits on your funeral.

When former KANU luminaries in their bespoke suits come to eulogize Matiba, how shall we treat them? We need a signal! Wish we had a Malema from amongst us. Or Kaggia was 37!
