A lookalike man to the late Kibra MP Ken Okoth was on Saturday spotted among the crowd that was celebrating together with the Deputy President William Ruto in Vienna, Austria, a few minutes after the greatest ever athlete, Eliud Kipchoge, beat the INEOS159 challenge.
Kipchoge defeated the INEOS challenge by 20 seconds after finishing the race at exactly 1:59:40.
The achievement earned the athlete a sport at the Guinness Book of Record since no human has ever achieved such a milestone.
The DP, who had travelled on Friday to cheer Kipchoge, was so elated by the athlete’s heroics and joined a group of supporters who had turned up to witness how the world record-holder beats the under-two-hour challenge.
As the fans mingled with the DP, a photo of the emotional moment in the history of Kenya has captured a man who has left social media wondering whether it was the late Kibra MP.
Kenyans made the photo go viral with various mixed reactions captioned on their posts.
Here is how Kenyans on Twitter reacted to the picture:
