City restaurant roasted for using Githeriman’s image

A city restaurant has been roasted by the online community for using ‘Githeriman’ Martin Kamotho’s image in a poster to sell their brand.

Netizens were particularly livid with Big Square food joint for allegedly not paying Mr Kamotho for using his picture and capitalizing on the man’s current popularity.

Kamotho became an online sensation after a picture of him eating githeri while waiting on a queue to vote on Election Day.

Big Square in one of their Facebook posts photoshopped the face of Mr Kamotho on their poster with a caption that reads, “Have you tried our menu.”

This is what netizens had to say.
