Larry Madowo’s social media pages, mostly Instagram have time and again proved to be a source of comical relief thanks to his witty character.

This is after the US-based Kenyan journalist, posted a funny looking or rather a rectangular chapati which left his fans in a frenzy.


The foodie’s fans, mostly Kenyans believe a ‘cultured’ chapati is supposed to have a perfect circular shape and with that said, some had a field day coming up with all sorts of creative gems surrounding the chapo.

Some suggested that the shape was a clear and great representation of the popular phrase ‘Kukaliwa chapati’ .

Another cheeky user suggested that Larry being from the Luo community, known for their love for classy and expensive items had to make a chapati that resembles a Macbook.

However, the winner of all of this was one Kelvin Chetambe who raised a very important point, which restored my faith in my shapeless chapatis.

While defending Larry’s Chapati, Kelvin posed; “Na nani aliamua ati chapati ikuwe round? I think they should have freedom just like maandazi.”
