ODM official responds after being accused of placing Jimi Wanjigi's obituary

The truth is out

Akala, who is also a member of the NASA Secretariat, denied being the man who was captured on CCTV making payment for the controversial obituary at Nation Centre.

He initially responded on a light note stating that the photo purportedly capturing his arrest had photo-shopped his belly.

As the fake news continued to spread on social media, the ODM official was forced to take action and record a statement with the DCI at Kilimani.

"Update: Thanks for all those who’ve alerted me to the defamatory posts doing the rounds. I’ve got 10 names of those behind it. Taking appropriate action," Akala stated.

The photo claiming to capture Akala's arrest was actually taken in September last year at the Okoa kenya secretariat office as a group  of youths ejected him from the premises - accused him of being a jubilee mole.

The development came even as Jimi Wanjigi insisted that the obituary was intentionally placed on the country's largest newspaper to threaten him and his family.
