"I Have Nor Received Any Car", Uhuru's Lookalike Now Says (VIDEO)

The new celebrity in town is Mr Michael Njogo Gitonga who has a striking resemblance to the current Kenyan president. This has earned him the nick name Uhunye and he has been trending in car this week. He offered several television stations interviews in which he told his story.

He is a resident of Umoja in Niarobi and owns a small bar that is currently closed due to Covid-19 safety measures. If you were keen yesterday, you would have noticed how much was written about the gentleman being gifted a new car. For example, The Star reported that Mr Njogo had received a brand new Lexus from Maridady car dealers.

It was stated that the benefactor of the gift was unknown. Pictures were circulated showing Mr Njogo in the car. This is a lie. Seemingly someone photoshopped the guy in a car and the story spread like wild fire.

In an Instagram post that has been shared by radio journalist Maina Wa Kageni, Mr Njogo Gitonga has recorded a small video in which he laments the fake news. He claims that he has not received any car from anyone and he has just been indoors and sanitizing. Here is the video.
