Although the article was originally published by The Sauce, the outlet was accused of “advancing” Western agenda.
“Morgan Freeman the humane heart that unites the world with his boldness. An actor/ orator/ a hero that truly means a limit that talent can go beyond the horizons,” commented Fred Koech in reaction to the story
“Human rights are only violated when it is not Europe or America. Stop the nonsense of preaching water while you drink wine,” Julius Mugo noted on Capital FM’s Facebook page.
Denis Memusi said: “Morgan is a Freeman you can’t deny him his freedom.”

The 85-year-old narrated the event live and delivered a speech about the “emotions that connect us all now”.
He also said: “We gather here as one big tribe and Earth is the tent we all live in.”
