"I have never served in Nakuru, let alone Molo. This tale has been fabricated by those who wish to agitate residents of Mount Kenya against me." He said.

According to him, the stations for which he worked are in the public domain and include Kirinyaga, Kiambu, Garisa, Kakamega, Laikipia, and Turkana.

He advised the media to verify some material before releasing it to the public, stating that every government institution maintains records on former employees.
