Lately on social media, Netizens are making jokes about the journey to Canaan. These range from seeking advice on the type of clothes and shoes to wear for the epic journey to the type of food to carry besides water.

The Canaan joke follows Kenya’s National Super Alliance (Nasa)’s assertion that with their leader Raila Odinga, or ‘Joshua’, Kenyans are headed for better life, in Canaan, if they win the Tuesday August 8 elections.

Memes on the said ‘trip’ have flooded social media as the countdown to elections day approaches.

The one that trended most of Tuesday was an hilarious one that played on Kenya’s tribes’ favourite bringing laughter even on a somber day when still reeling from news of the murder of Chris Msando, who was managing data at the Independent  Electoral and Boundaries Commission.
