From The Twittersphere
WHO runs the world? Chickens, egg sê! Step aside Beyonce, even if it’s for ‘one day only’. Chickens ruled the roost on Namibian Twitter timelines yesterday. It followed a report that police at Gobabis had rescued the now ‘famous five’ (aka the ‘feathered 5’) from the yolk of criminal oppression, and were holding them in custody for their own safety!
@ShambeAngula: The safety and security of chickens has been taken 4 granted in this country 4 a really long time. Big ups 2 the Gobabis police. U are heroes.
@kamdrew: ‘Chickens in Police Custody at Gobabis’. Well, Well ... I think we are about to find out why the chicken crossed the road after all.
@Tuliz: Why did the chickens cross the road? To get to the Gobabis Police Station.
@DefPoetPoetri: I have a dream that one day chickens can cross the road without having their motives questioned.
@lakes_gbb: The chickens are innocent till proven guilty and have been instructed by their lawyer not to say a word.
@DavidTocks: Chickens are also sneaky, they probably slept with married chickens which are married in community of property
@omegas_last: Lawyers will now have case law to quote from in the matter of the state versus the chickens, the courts have decided that nothing is above the law.
@crazynellz: I really feel that this ‘Chickens in Jail’ story is Namibia’s attempt to top South Africa’s ‘Government solicits Beyoncé’ story.
@MathildaNam: Reading the local dailies is amazing. You go from fury to fits of laughter to utter disbelief. Smh. I love Namibia.
@Sirkandina: How does a 3 bedroom house in Dorado park with a ‘swimming pool’ cost 1.9 mil? #OccupyWindhoek!
@KannyOfNam: This Windhoek weather got me answering my office phone “Good morning” at 15:00. #!tso
@typhoon_a: Owululume wekiya otawuku morosa, nafiwo omongula (the prick of a thorn will sting until the next day) ... Things #tatebuti sings, neh ...
@hansiipinge: Lady May is only loud when she is on stage, not home. Such a sweet girl.
@laVidaLoca_NA: Whenever I see Barbz saying something to the other housemates, it reminds me of my grandma telling us stories round the fire. #BigBroAfrica
@GawaxabE: The chances for Lady May and Junia to reach the millions gets better and better – love the show (BBA).
@SuperSena: #AfricanPickupLines you are the sugar in my rooibos tea.
@sutaonce: This week is going slower than a snail in garlic butter!
@Aldr3d: The debt collector called, I told them I have $17,859,362,498 in Mafia Wars ... I’m just having a hard time transferring the money to them!
@Ndawapeka: Remember kids, brush your teeth before you log on. #SayNoToMorningBreath-OnYourTL
