A social media forum for Uasin Gishu residents today woke up to a shocking surprise.
One of the group administrators of the Uasin Gishu County Forum page on Facebook changed the main poster to that of governor Mandago’s strongest opponent, Kiprop Bundotich aka Buzeki.
Kimutai PK KP, whose real name is Paul Kimutai, changed the group’s header image to a poster that promotes Buzeki, yet the group’s members, which total about 95,000, have known him to be a staunch Mandago supporter, who has been throwing shade at Buzeki with every post he publishes on the various Facebook forums.
A few weeks ago, Kimutai was put on the spot for having created a fake news post implicating Royal Media Services’ Citizen TV in a fake ‘news bulletin’ whose headline read: ‘Buzeki Steps Down.’
The image quickly spread on social media with Mandago’s social media ‘robots’ picking it up and sharing it widely, unaware of the implications it would have.
Kimutai quickly posted an apology letter, which he later deleted, after realizing people’s comments condemned him more than his intended purpose of receiving praises for what he felt was a courageous act on his part.
Both the broker’s post and comments didn’t go unnoticed as a local online publisher had already captured screenshots of the deleted material.
Kimutai, who is known online as a political socialite, is now at pains to explain himself, yet again, as to why he put up a Buzeki poster, yet he has sworn in previous posts to bring him down saying “Buzeki Must Fall”, and now he has ditched the Mandago camp to rally for his main opponent.
Uasin Gishu residents on these forums have however indicated their unwavering support for Buzeki, and reiterated they will not be moved by Kimutai’s flimsy statements nor his fake apologies each time he publishes information in the groups.
He is now being referred to as a ‘mole’ being used to infiltrate Mandago’s camp for information then sharing it back with his opponents’ teams, thereby earning money from all sides as he hops about.
See here a previous photo he published after holding ‘secret’ talks with Mandago in a supposed political meeting:
