A Young man of the Somali origin took the internet with waves after flaunting $100 notes( equivalent of Sh10,000) with word going round that the dude was a son to Mandera County Governor Ali Roba.
Here is the video.
In the video, a suave-looking bearded young man of Somali descent in dark glasses is seen flashing dollar notes in a Sh22 Million Bentley Bentyaga.
Other cars paraded in the video include the Mercedes Benz E350, Lexus 570 and the stash of Dollars.
In his defence, Mandera County Ali Roba refuted the claims through his Chief of staff David Ohito.
“This is fake news. Governor Roba has very young children non in the driving age bracket. This is cheap propaganda by desperate keyboard warriors out to tarnish his name,” said Mr Ohito.
According to Ohito, the young man whose video has the handle @war_same(Warsame) a name that he says is not in the Roba family.
“The name Warsame is strange in Roba’s family ancestry. I am on record. Roba is a very polished breed of a leader, not your ordinary Kenya market place politician,” declared Ohito.
Also, the Bentley plates, KCQ 744Y belongs to Lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi.
The 1 man 1 sh Cambridge Analytica are on overdrive to character assassinate Senators.
1. That is a Bentley Bentayga & not continental.
2. The car belongs to @ahmednasirlaw & I am sure he will take offence to reduce it to a continental.
The desperation is real! @ledamalekina pic.twitter.com/aOUraqUJjJ
