Wetangula denies insulting a Kenyan guy on twitter
When any of them is caught in a tight spot, he/she announces photoshop or fake account.
Incase you were not following the story, a Twitter account believed to belong to CORD Principal Moses Wetangula insulted a guy by the name Kelly Gitahi.
You can read on that story HERE.
We published the story first thing in the morning and it was soon on all media. When things got hot, Wetangula announced that the account is a fake and that his real account is @WetangulaMoses.
Before we published the story, we ruled out the possibility that the account was a fake for one simple reason; the followers.
The account Wetangula alleges to be fake has over 10,000 followers, but it’s actually their names that convinced us it was his real account.
I mean, Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka, Kidero, Jimnah Mbaru, several senators and tens of journalists cannot all be following a parody account.
Looking through the account he says is his real account, I cannot find a single follower I recognize.
It is always difficult to tell a real account before Twitter gives the blue badge, but the tell-tale signs are there. It’s very probable that Wetangula owns the account. Most probably both accounts.
