Larry Madowo, a Kenyan National Television (NTV) presenter/anchor, had his share of hilarious Wikipedia edit. His Wikipedia’s new biography implied that he was a successful politician born back in 1889. Larry commented on the screenshot of the defaced page posted by one of his fans and said the biography was awesome.
The new biography describes Larry Madowo as a Kenyan Politician who was the head of the Kazi Party. The introduction states that he served as a Kenyan Chancellor from 1933 to 1944. From 1934 to 1945, he led Kazi Kenya and started the World War 11 by invading Poland in September 1939. The comical description concludes that Larry Madowo currently serves as a presenter with fears that he may be a vampire.
