Friday, March 15, 2019-The famous Githeri man made headlines during August 2017 General Elections after a photo of him carrying githeri while waiting to vote spread online like bushfire.
He became a darling of corporate companies and landed several lucrative deals.
He was even recognized by the President through the Head of State commendation.
But despite all the fame and glamour, he is living like a pauper in Saba-Saba area of Kayole slums.
The Kenyan DAILY POST has learnt that Githeri man is living in a single room and it’s struggle to pay house rent which is less than Ksh 5,000.
He lives alone after parting ways with his wife.
Speaking in an interview, Githeri man confirmed that is living a poor life saying,”This is where I’ve lived for more than a decade. Many people think I’m rich. In fact, it makes me sad when they call me Githeri Man, thinking I am a millionaire. I have nothing. The people around here know me – they know ‘sina kitu’. Otherwise ‘wangekuwa wananipiga ngeta kila siku,”
Most corporate companies that promised githeri man heaven on earth have not fulfilled their promises.
He is back to the poor life he was living before he came to the limelight.
