Friday, September 27, 2019 - Nominated Jubilee Senator, Isaac Mwaura, has found himself in a tight corner after a photo he claims to be his as a young boy went viral.
It all started after Mwaura, who represents Persons Living with Disabilities in the Senate, posted a photo of a child living with albinism on his Facebook page.
The photo shows the boy standing in front of other kids you could think he was addressing them.
Mwaura claimed that the boy with albinism was him ‘sharing his leadership skills at an early age.’
“I started addressing a political gathering at the age of 4 years. A great TBT in 1986 at Githunguri, Kiambu County,” Mwaura wrote.
However, some of his followers have accused Mwaura of lying after the photo was recently used by an international publication to highlight the plight of people living with albinism in Zambia.
One Facebook user commented: “Mheshimiwa, are you admitting that this is your photo in 1986? Because it’s high definition and by then such photos were non-existent?”
To which Mwaura replied: “God has been so faithful. I have seen this photo being used by international media houses over the years,”
