Former late President Mwai Kibaki’s eldest son, Jimmy Kibaki, has cleared the air over Twitter accounts linking him to the Deputy President William Ruto-led Kenya Kwanza Alliance.
In a statement to newsrooms on Friday, May 13, Jimmy said the accounts were fake and that Kenyans should ignore all the fake information from his imposters.
“It has come to my attention that there are several fake Twitter accounts impersonating me, and purporting to imply that I support the Kenya Kwanza political formation.
“I would like to take this opportunity to inform Kenyans that they should ignore all fake and preposterous announcements emanating from these delinquent imposters,” Jimmy stated.
The businessman, however, said that his loyalty is to President Uhuru Kenyatta due to his family’s long relationship with the Kenyatta family.
“Any right-thinking Kenyan who understands the 62-year relationship between the Kenyatta and Kibaki families will know that my loyalty to President Uhuru Kenyatta is sacrosanct, and our 50-year-old friendship endures,” he added.
On his preferred presidential candidate in the upcoming August polls, Jimmy said that his vote was a secret.
“As to who I will vote for in the upcoming presidential election in August...as the voting is by secret ballot, my vote is, as it is for my fellow citizens, my secret,” he concluded.
