Literary critic, Ikhide Ikheloa slams Reno Omokri for his insensitive comment following the death of renowned Kenyan writer Binyavanga Wainaina

Nigerian literary critic Ikhide Ikheloa, popularly known as Pa Ikhide, has slammed Reno Omokri for the insensitive comment he made following the death of renowned Kenyan author Binyavanga Wainaina at the age of 48.

Wainaina passed away on Tuesday night at a Nairobi hospital. Shortly after his death was announced, Reno took to Twitter to say his death should be a lesson that being LGBTQ is a risky lifestyle and leaves people susceptible to HIV/AIDS.

His comment came at a time when friends and family members of Wainaina were grieving and a number of people called him out for his wrong timing and insensitivity.

Pa Ikhide also blasted him on Facebook, writing: "Reno Omokri, you are despicable, and for this I am #BLOCKING you."
