"The rate at which MPs and Azimio elected Leaders are decamping to Kenya Kwanza is Amazing to me. How I wish Azimio could organize themselves earlier as I had advised them, they could be enjoying having their government today. Ni Sawa Tu!!" the fake tweet read.
Fact-checker has, however, debunked the tweet and established that it is from a fake Twitter account.
The account that made the tweet is not that of the outgoing MP.
By the time of going to press, the original account, @ngunjiriwambugu, had 177.1k followers.
He was following 1,750 accounts.
A scan through the original account shows that Ngunjiri has not posted such a message shared on the parody account.
The MP has warned Kenyans from falling prey to tweets made in his name.
"Jambo. For the record. This is my only Twitter account," he tweeted.
Ngunjiri is one of the few Mt Kenya MPs who supported Azimio presidential candidate Raila Odinga for the presidency.
He served the Nyeri Town constituency from 2017 to 2022 when he was kicked out by a UDA candidate Duncan Mathenge in the August 9 elections.
The constituency is in Nyeri county which overwhelmingly voted for President-elect William Ruto.
Deputy President-elect Rigathi Gachagua hails from the region.
