Mike Sonko caught out with doctored image of him and Nelson Mandela

A
Kenyan senator who posted an image of himself with Nelson Mandela on his Facebook account has been caught out after it was exposed
as a photoshopped picture.

The image was posted on Mike Sonko's Facebook page last Friday along with the caption: "A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination".

The original picture however is Mandela smiling with the boxer Muhammad Ali. The photoshopped image features Mike Sonko wearing a pair of sunglasses, looking toward the camera.

The photo has also been edited to feature an outdoor background.


Members of the public mocked the photo in the comments. They pointed out that when the photo was taken, Mr Sonko would have been just a young boy.
Most of the comments thought the image was funny, which has been 'liked' more than 5,000 times.
Sam Muthwike commented below: "We have very true leaders... a talent for sure!"
Other users pointed out that Mr Sonko was not as tall as the image suggested.
Some were more offended by the image, however. Peter Ogwankwa Muma said on Facebook "It's distasteful to manipulate pictures of Nelson Mandela for self gratification at this time."
He was pictured in sunglasses, a red hat and a shirt of Kenyan colours earlier on Thursday at an event to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Kenyan independence from Britain.
However, he was also photographed at the same event drinking from a water bottle printed with the union flag on.
Mr Sonko was elected as an MP for Nairobi in 2010, but was kicked out after he refused to take off his earrings and sunglasses in parliament. He was elected as a senator for Nairobi earlier this year.

He tagged 10 other people in the image, which has been shared almost 700 times on Facebook.

Ata hiyo ya M. Ali ni photoshoped. Kama ni swag ya Sonko to commemorate his Icon, then what's the fuss all about? He is just being creative.

Mkuu, nakuunga mkono? Tena afadhali ya Sonko inaonesha wote wakitabasamu kuliko ile ya Mohamed Ali ambaye amenuna huku Mandela akitabasamu
