They are genuine! Ex-Governor Wycliffe Oparanya addresses leaked photos

Former Kakamega governor Wycliffe Oparanya has finally addressed the circulating photos featuring him alongside his “loved one”, identified as Mary Biketi.

On Saturday, April 27, 2024, the public was surprised by the emergence of these photos showing the former governor posing with Biketi.

Reports indicate that Biketi, a model, shared the images, prompting widespread speculation about their relationship.

In a recent video posted on Biketi’s social media platforms, Oparanya confirmed the authenticity of the photos, saying they were taken with a “loved one”.

Expressing confusion over their circulation, he emphasised that they were taken in a private and respectful manner.

“I have seen someone circulating my photos, genuine photos those are very genuine photos and I don’t know why someone would circulate them. But it is unfortunate when I took those photos, they leaked to the press. Those are very decent photos and I don’t know the interest that people have when you have taken photos with a loved one,” he said.

Oparanya also dispelled rumours suggesting he was unwell, asserting that he was in excellent health adding that he has a family that needs his protection from fake news.

“And there is now fake news that I am in the hospital, I am sick. I have a big family to protect so those sending out fake information that I am sick, here I am and I am able to speak and I have no problem. I have been in Mombasa here for a few days meeting my people from my community,” he said.

In one of the images circulated, the pair seemed engrossed in an intimate discussion, possibly within a club ambience, where Biketi wore a form-fitting dress.

After these photos surfaced, Kenyans voiced their opinions, largely condemning Biketi for posting the pictures online, considering Oparanya’s marital status with two wives.
