Friday, 04 February 2022 – A 29-year-old city engineer, identified as Stephen Gachukia, is enjoying and enduring the misery of resembling outspoken Kiharu Member of Parliament Ndindi Nyoro.
“Mine is not a quiet life even though I am not a prominent person. In the public, I am addressed by some people, jokingly or unknowingly as Mheshimiwa which is exciting but often they realise I am not the vocal MP.
“But on social media, I face the wrath of his critics who mistake me for him or just target me to vent their anger,” Gachukia opens up.
Gachukia, who hails from Gatanga in Murang’a, which is also Nyoro’s county, says he is pestered with questions if he is the MP’s twin brother or how they are related.
The Electrical & Electronic Engineering graduate from Technical University of Kenya is also ridiculed by people who wonder why he is jobless yet according to them, he is “MP’s twin brother”.
Others ask him to link them up with Nyoro.
“It hurts when some people laugh at my humble life because they believe I should take advantage of my resemblance with a well-up person,” he laments.
Gachukia lives at Kahawa West estate in Nairobi and hopes he will meet Nyoro one day.
