Nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura was on Thursday put on the spot over a photo he uploaded on social media.
In the photo, an albino boy is standing in front of six children. Mwaura claimed that he was the boy in the photo and it was captured in 1986.
“I started addressing a political gathering at the age of 4 years. A great #TBT in 1986 at Githunguri, Kiambu County,” he wrote.
Netizens were, however, far from convinced since the same photo was at one point used by Deutsche Welle to highlight the plight of albinos in Zambia.
Mwaura maintained that he was the young boy in the photo and expressed his gratitude to the Almighty.
“God has been so faithful, I have seen this photo being used by international media houses over the years,” wrote the Nominated Senator.
Netizens refused to buy his story and heavily criticized him for lying.
