As he had earlier predicted netizens flocked the comment section full of opinions on the politician’s post.
Some trolled him for posting photoshopped pictures while others cautioned that he was on the path many took towards lowering their self-esteem by posting jokes on social media.
”Quote of the day – Kitambi Haimalizwi na Photoshop.”
”Sonko,gym haitoi kitambi bro. Itabidi uwache fombe”
”Unless it was a pregnancy and you gave birth yesterday, this is you four days ago” netizens observed.
The once upon a time government official seems to have body image issues with his belly as he had hinted in May early this year that he was hoping onto a water and vegetable only diet that would see him cut belly fat.
”Operation kukata kitambi kukula healthy once per day mboga pekee na maji” He said in X.
That sadly, is not the only situation where he brought up the conversation about his belly.
In 2019, the philanthropist made a light joke after his protruding belly was pictured during a meeting with reggae music sensation Gramps Morgan.
He tweeted”Hii kitambi yangu inakuwa ngorii itabidi gym sasa. Enjoy the rest of your Friday ni masaa ya kutoka coffee.”
