Jimmy Kibaki has since rubbished claims that he supports the presidential candidacy of Deputy President William Ruto.

While disowning pronouncements made on several fake Twitter accounts created in his name, the son of Kenya’s late president Mwai Kibaki averred that he supports President Uhuru Kenyatta and is guided by him.

“It has come to my attention that there are several fake Twitter accounts impersonating me and purporting to imply that I support the Kenya Kwanza political formation,” he said in a statement sent to newsrooms.

“I would like to take this opportunity to inform Kenyans that they should ignore all fake and preposterous announcements emanating from these delinquent imposters. Any right-thinking Kenyan, who understands the 62-year relationship between the Kenyatta and Kibaki families, will know that my loyalty to President Uhuru Kenyatta is sacrosanct, and our 50-year-old friendship endures,” he stated.

“As to who I will vote for in the upcoming presidential election in August; as the voting is by secret ballot, my vote is, as it is for my fellow citizens, my secret,” he added.
