Martin Kamotho the man who carried the hopes of the country during the hotly contested August 8 elections has today voted at Imara Primary School in Embakasi.
Githeri man as he came to be known, looked refined and polished in a suit, far from the photo that captured the nation during the last election.
The githeri that he had carried along when he went to vote was nowhere this time around.
Githeri man rose to national fame after he was spotted in a queue munching his githeri away as he inched closer to vote.
The photo catapulted him to instant stardom as media houses and corporate bodies sought him to tell his story.
Like hot cakes, his fortune from a county cleaner immediately hit the roof as the sweet deals and endorsements earned him a sizeable amount of wealth including a piece of land.
The buzz he generated quickly morphed into memes, videos and songs becoming a celebrity in his home area in Kayole’s Thawabu estate.
