There are those who believe that in this world of close to 8 billion people, that there must be someone who resembles you. The term used is doppelgänger.
Apparently the late Kibra Mp, Ken Okoth’s doppelgänger has just been found! The man was seen in Vienna, Austria cheering on Eliud Kipchoge as the marathon legend on his quest to become the first man to run the distance in under 2 hours.
The man, who has since been identified only by his Twitter name Sitati, was spotted among a team of Kenyans in Vienna, Austria, cheering on world marathon record holder Eliud Kipchoge during the INEOS 1:59 challenge.
Sitati was seen in various photos taken by Kenyan dignitaries who had travelled to Vienna on behalf of the government to show support for Kipchoge.
The photos excited Kenyans on Twitter (KOT) as a section of them even wondered tongue in cheek whether Mr. Okoth was still alive while some jokingly asked him to resume his duty as Kibra MP.
The man has finally come out to speak saying he is neither Ken Okoth, nor is he related to the late lawmaker in any way.
With one and only @DonaldBKipkorir @EliudKipchoge @INEOS159 @makaumutua @ahmednasirlaw @vienna Vienna was epic. For the record am not Ken Okoth pic.twitter.com/08FrBz9AJX

The interesting thing about both the photos is that apart from Sitati, someone more popular was always in them. In the first photo, Ruto is greeting Kenyans, while in the second one Kenyan born cyclist and 4 time Tour de’ France winner Chris Froome was in the second!
But everyone could only see Okoth! What an impact the man had!
