National Super Alliance (NASA) loyalists have been pushing a narrative that Asian tycoon Jack Ma has endorsed its presidential candidate Raila Odinga.
To make the narrative believable, the group has been sharing a photo that shows Ma, who arrived in the country on Wednesday last week, wearing a NASA cap.
The photo which was shared by many netizens, including ODM’s Communications Director Philip Etale, has left a section of Kenyans with more questions than answers.
But has the e-commerce mogul, who’s currently China’s richest man with a fortune of $30 billion, endorsed Raila Odinga? Not quite.
Reports indicate that comedian Maurice Ochieng, popularly known as Mdomo Baggy, meet Jack Ma at a top city hotel where he was having a meeting and requested for a photo.
Somehow, he managed to convince the billionaire to put on the NASA cap.
