Michael Gitonga became an Internet sensation in August last year following his striking resemblance to President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Following the virality of his photos, many brands offered to help him live a decent life to an extent of gifting him a new car, a house and a holiday.

However, this year he surfaced again with a cry that he was “used” after being kicked out of the Kilimani house he had been given.

After the call, we went to the pub where Michael had mentioned. He was drinking and looked drunk but refused to admit it.

He mentioned off Camera that he had been told to go back to the house in Kilimani but didn’t want to, because he felt his life was in Danger"

During the interview, Michael Gitonga’s first wife Angelica said that her husband abandoned her with their two kids over 6 years ago and she benefited nothing from his "Celebrity status".

Gitonga’s friend Matheri also mentioned that the car he (Michael) was given is in bad shape;" Hiyo gari sijui hata kama itafika December ameigongesha kila mahali juu ya ulevi"
