Kirubi added that he was not associated with the organization and that the information it was peddling was misleading.
“I would like to inform the public that I am in no way associated with this organization and the information provided is misleading and deceptive,” he explained on his Twitter handle.

The rogue website had gone further in its fake special report to give details on how Kirubi had ventured into this latest investment and was reaping big.
