Vocal and youthful Mumia East MP Peter Salasya has promised to table a bill in Parliament that will ensure social media impersonators are dealt with perpendicularly.
The fearless member of the National Assembly even vowed to push it with all the life in his being as impersonators have been giving public figures sleepless night.
MP Peter Salasya’s decision, rather promise was inspired by a random social media user who had opened a parody Twitter account with his name.
According to Peter Salasya, the impersonator has been using his name wrongly and peddling fake news all for more followers and likes.
Taking to his official Twitter account, Peter Salasya categorically stated that the person behind his parody Twitter account should be arrested immediately.
“The silly idiot operating this account should be arrested with immediate effect .He is using my name wrongly to get followers .I will introduce a bill in the @NAssemblyKE to bring this impersonator to book. Nkt!” Peter Salasya wrote.
YEIYO.com ran a quick research on the parody Twitter account and discovered it has been fast gaining followers, with over 3,000 people following it religiously.
However, it should be noted Peter Salasya is not the only leader and first victim of social media impersonators.
From former President Uhuru Kenyatta, to Francis Atwoli, to Mike Sonko and major media entities like Citizen TV, many people have fallen victims to social media impersonators.
The social media impersonators mostly use the parody accounts to peddle fake news and push links for various gutter press links.
