The social media billionaire's first stop was at the iHub, Nairobi's technology innovation hub, an open-space centre for technologists, investors, tech companies and hackers.

And just as Mark did in Lagos, Nigeria, he tried a local Kenyan dish, ugali and fried tilapia which is usually eaten with the fingers.

"We ate at MAMA Oliech Restaurant. -- a local place everyone recommended. One of my favorite parts of traveling to a new country is trying the food. I enjoyed ugali and a whole fried tilapia for the first time and loved them both!"

Zuckerberg who gushed about the ugali and tilapia was joined by the ICT Cabinet Secretary Joe Mucheru with whom they discussed internet access and connecting everyone in Kenya.
