But Fatuma Gedi didn’t take this lightly. She also produced one of Didmus Barasa’s worst kept secret. Apparently, Mr Barasa was a conman before he became an honourable member of parliament.
His conmanship was bad, that Sportpesa had to issue a public notice with his picture and ID number warning Kenyans against conducting any business with him.
‘This is to warn the public that the person whose name and photograph appears above is not authorised and has never been authorised to act or transact on behalf of Pevans East Africa Limited/Sportpesa,’ reads part of the public notice.

It is not clear when Sportpesa issued this statement, but Kenyans have called for the arrest of Didmus Barasa after it emerged online.
