As the world morns the passing of a great leader and a hero, Kenyan Senator decided to post a tribute picture on his Facebook page. The only thing was that the picture was a big fake and he wasn't expecting the blowup it would have on him.
The picture was posted on Mike Sonko's Facebook page along with a caption;
"A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination"The original picture is Mandela smiling with boxer legend Mohammed Ali. While the fake photo-shopped image, has Mike Sonko wearing a pair of glasses, smiling to the picture. The photo has been edited to feature an outdoor appearance. He tagged 10 people in the image and has been shared over 700 times.
Just like BigBrother, the internet is ALWAYS watching;
Members of the public mocked the photo in the comments. They pointed out that when the photo was taken, Mr Sonko would have been just a young boy.Mike Sonko was elected as an MP for Nairobi in 2010 but was later kicked out because he refused to take off his earrings and sunglasses in parliament. He was elected earlier this year as a Senator for Nairobi.
Most of the comments thought the image was funny, which has been ‘liked’ more than 5,000 times.
Sam Muthwike commented below: “We have very true leaders… a talent for sure!”
Other users pointed out that Mr Sonko was not as tall as the image suggested.
African leader, please do lead by example. Like Nelson Mandela. This is highly embarrassing.
Sonko is yet to comment on the very embarrassing photo.
