Foreign Funnies: Solon Razes Cartoonists

A Kenyan politician underwent surgery dealing a blow to the country’s cartoonists and caricaturists.

From Nairobi Wire:

Former Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) secretary-general Wilson Sossion is having the last laugh following his recent surgery to eliminate fatty tissue (lipoma) from his forehead.

Sossion had two trademark lumps on his forehead, which were often the subject of ridicule on newspaper caricatures. On Monday, Sossion underwent a 15-minute surgery, having consulted with a skilled reconstruction surgeon from the Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH).

Pulse Kenya reports:

However, after the successful surgery, he playfully taunted cartoonists, declaring that they will no longer have the opportunity to depict that characteristic in their drawings.

“Cartoonists, you will have nothing to draw on my forehead anymore!” Sossion said playfully.

Wilson Sossion took to twitter to taunt cartoonists. “Big blow to cartoonists.”
