#GitheriMan Breaking the Internet

#GitheriMan Breaking the Internet

I come across this image on Sasabasi’s Instagram page a little dig he threw on someone queuing up to cast their vote on the 8/8/17 by the 9/8/17 this image was trending everywhere and Githeri man was the image that would stand out to represent the 2017 Kenya election.

He was trending on twitter and remained trending until the next day as news outlets scrambled to be the first to get him for an interview. CitizenTV managed to do so and we soon found out that Martin Kimotho was the prepared voter who got himself a snack in order to survive the long queue as he voted. We cannot fail to thank the fast thinking photographer who took the snap and offered an insight to the real heroes out to cast their votes and exercise their democratic rights. Ian Kinuthia took the photo that went viral having just finshed high school he wants to pursue a career in journalism.

#Githeriman made rounds around the world with some help from photoshop, check out some of the places you might have missed him.


Incase you never knew Sauti Sol has a fifth member. 

It might have been easy to miss him in a sea of face on Lamar’s ‘Humble’ video.
