A Popular Tiktok personality has come out to sharply defend himself. This is after he was recently faulted for allegedly conning Ksh344k as 'fare’ after getting courted by an unsuspecting man. The allegedly fake news surfaced online early this week and soon after went viral sparking chatter among Kenyans. The TikTok personality known as Kelvin Kinuthia has addressed those claims and thus totally distanced himself from the allegations and warned the accusers of using his name for clout. In a video, Kinuthia however clarified that his name is not Justin Kioko and he is not from Machakos County.
“I don’t know about that, no money was sent to me. The statement was saying that the money is for shopping, a flight ticket and buying a new phone. I know most people will believe the story because of the new phone I bought. No one bought me the new phone,” he said. As reported on the blog, it was alleged that a man from Machakos was arrested for ‘eating fare’ of Ksh344,000 after successfully duping his counterpart from Siaya that he was a beautiful lady.
The ‘lady’ apparently received the cash from Godfrey Owino who he says they had planned for ‘her’ to travel from Kilifi to Siaya county. According to Owino, the money was to cover two-way flight tickets, shopping, and for ‘her’ to buy a brand new phone.
