In the streets of Kenya, Jesus Christ walked about in fine white linen and treated an already awed crowd to a dance session. Thank goodness it did not happen in the same place and time where and when a giant-sized lion paraded like it was some East African real estate investor. Or did it? Fake news. All of them.
