Kalonzo calls himself ‘Salome’ and netizens go crazy
Funny memes of Kalonzo Musyoka are trending online after revelation that his Identification Card (ID) number was used to register a woman by the name Salome.
The memes have gone viral after the Wiper leader said in a rally that his daughter has been teasing him as ‘Salome’.
Mr Musyoka’s ID number was found to have been erroneously captured twice in the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) voters register.
Ms Salome was later traced and her details corrected in the voters register to indicate the correct ID number.
Users have likened Mr Musyoka to popular bongo hit Salome and creating memes and tweets to make fun of the error.
