Man speaks out after comparisons with late Kibra MP Ken Okoth

A Kenyan man with an uncanny resemblance to late Kibra Member of Parliament Ken Okoth on Saturday lit up the internet.

The man, who has since been identified only by his Twitter name Sitati, was spotted among a team of Kenyans in Vienna, Austria, cheering on world marathon record holder Eliud Kipchoge during the INEOS 1:59 challenge.

Sitati was seen in various photos taken by Kenyan dignitaries who had travelled to Vienna on behalf of the government to show support for Kipchoge.

The photos excited Kenyans on Twitter (KOT) as a section of them even wondered, albeit lightly so, whether Mr. Okoth was still alive while some jokingly asked him to resume his duty as Kibra MP.

The man has finally come out to speak saying he is neither Ken Okoth, nor is he related to the late lawmaker in any way.
