Breaking the Internet: ‘Githeri Man’ Martin Kamotho is the big winner in Kenyan elections

  • PublishedAugust 14, 2017

Since his photo eating ‘githeri’ from a paper bag went viral spanning hilarious memes, Martin Kamotho aka ‘Githeri Man’ seems to just keep winning.

Since being discovered in his home area in Kayole  last week, ‘Githeri Man’ received three brand new phones, complete with airtime, said to be worth an estimated Kshs 200,000.

Shortly thereafter, a real estate firm gave him not only a piece of land in Ngong, but pledged to build him a house as well.

The photo of Kamotho eating ‘Githeri’ from a clear polythene paper bag was taken by a random voter as Kamotho was waiting in line for his turn to vote and thereafter went viral. Which just goes to show that being yourself is rewarding!

On Saturday, August 12, pictures of a dapper ‘Githeri Man’ in new threads went viral after another noble Kenyan decided to dress him up in a snug-fitting suit. From your ordinary, much- ado-about- nothing 40-year-old fella, to a strapping man in a dapper suit. Well in ‘Githeri Man’, well in.
