The Nation Media Group has released what they say is the CCTV footage of the man suspected to be behind the obituary announcing the death of businessman Jimmy Wanjigi.

On Wednesday, the suspect claimed Wanjigi died in a foiled robbery attempt at his Karen home opening a flurry of responses from Kenyans among them Jimmy Wanjigi himself.

Despite the change of the name of Wanjigi to Wanjagi, an attempt to tweak his photograph appears to have failed, prompting a myriad of responses including one from Wanjigi himself.
