If you thought you loved free things, then you would be nowhere near Kenyans who happened to be around Carrefour supermarkets on Thursday.

The announcement of an offer in the cooking oil not only brought to a standstill the activities at the supermarkets but also made people literally fight.

From a video that has so far gone viral, some Kenyans struggled to carry and run with more than ten bottles of cooking oils only for them to end up falling on the floors.

According to sources familiar with the incident, Carrefour supermarket reduced the price of 5 litres of cooking oil by almost half.

Following the oil heist at the Carrefour supermarket, Kenyans expressed mixed reactions as captured below:

“It’s unfortunate that Kenyans still believe in this issue of contaminated cooking fat, this govt of yours are just cartels. In business there is no contaminated cooking fat, it’s just a deal gone bad at the Port.”

“Poor management skills, they would have limited the quantity per customer to 2 or 3, to minimize all this.”

“Killed farm who produced crop lke sunflower, and high price of butter which far healthy than those liquid oil people are rushing to buy, how many house hold can afford to buy olive oil other than the church and the wealth. I will never forget mum planted some sunflower but ended up a animal feeds.”

“Who was that making those sounds 😅😅😂Enyewe excitement can make one screech.”

“We were forced to stay outside for 20mins…offer removed for people to shop in peace… It was chaotic.”

“Nowadays selling something sold on offer is either contaminated has a short expiry especially foodstuffs.”

“Wadau mmesahau Kuna contaminated and expired cooking oil ilikua in several containers zilipotea pale KPA ?? The way you understand my statement is none of my business !!.”

“This is painful reality of how life is when our president is busy taking loans for infrastructure without thinking of food security and taxing basic commodities to benefit RELATHIEVES.”

“I think this is the mad rush for things done in America during Thanksgiving. I think it’s the day after. Just sad.”

“And I got shocked when Americans were scrambling for toilet paper 🧻, Lord see your Kenyan children 🙄.”

“Aki Kenyans,🤦🤦 Even people who drive range rovers and live in Muthaiga were there scrambling for cheap oil. I wish it was possible for the oil to be sold only to the needy.”
