Githeri man was a symbol of patriotism and a commitment to one’s civic duty for many Kenyans during the 2017 general elections.
The image of him waiting in line waiting to vote while clutching a see-through polythene bag with his githeri inside left an unforgettable mark on many.
That year was a good one for him, he even awarded him a Head of State commendation. But those were the glory days for him as an image of him doing the rounds has many Kenyans worried and troubled.
Martin Kamotho (his real names) is seen in viral photos circulating online being carried on a wheelbarrow as he looks to be dead asleep.
The odd thing is that this scene happens during the day so one must wonder what is going on?
Some netizens spoke about the picture and revealed their thoughts. Some are below;
