The Githeri man 50 best memes: The online overnight celebrity

Share this:

The githeri man took the online space in Kenya by storm when he was photo-shopped into different scenes from politics to movies to family events.

He is now known as Kenya’s most famous voter. His real name is Martin Kamotho, but has been coined the Githeri Man online for appearing in a photo with his lunch (Githeri) while standing in his voting queue. He enabled a much needed comic relief in the country during a tense & divisive election period. The much needed humor took the edge off the otherwise peaceful post election period in Kenya this August 2017.

He has taken his new found celebrity to new heights which include working with corporate brands to market their good and services as well as receiving a presidential award.
