The ‘ghost’ of the late Kibra MP Ken Okoth has spoken.
The supposed ghost is a Kenyan man who shares a striking resemblance to the deceased MP. The man was spotted in a group of Kenyans who were cheering on Marathon icon Eliud Kipchoge as he made history in Vienna, Austria on Saturday.
The man, who has been identified as [email protected] on Twitter, was, in fact, a trending topic for the better part of Saturday as Kenyans on the social platform marveled at his uncanny resemblance to Ken Okoth.
Following the social media buzz, Sitati was forced to go on record to state that he is not Ken Okoth.
Sharing a picture with city lawyer Donald Kipkorir, Sitati tweeted: “With one and only @DonaldBKipkorir @EliudKipchoge @INEOS159 @makaumutua @ahmednasirlaw @vienna Vienna was epic. For the record am not Ken Okoth.”
Here are some reactions from Kenyans on Twitter:
