Singer and former radio presenter Talia Oyando almost had her holiday at the coast ruined on Tuesday afternoon. The former Emmy award winner together with a friend fell victims of what they branded “racism in their own country” after they were asked by a manager of a hotel in Diani “not to swim at the beach” as it was reserved for white people only.

Angered by this incidence Talia took to Twitter, to express her anger and disappointment. “Oh wait and there’s also a place in Diani where Africans are not allowed to swim, ” she wrote. “Just experienced racism on Kenyan soil. In 2012 apparently we are not in Kenya. Breathes in and out,” read another one of her tweets.
As if being told off was not enough the German manager who could not be identified went on to insult them. “He really abused us, things I cannot repeat and told us we are not in Kenya but German Park and to F*** off.”
When she reported the matter to Diani police station the manager was still arrogant and refused to get out of the premises telling the police that he was eating and claimed to not speak English. He however apologised to Talia and her posse after spending some time at the police station writing a statement with the help of a translator.
