A politician allied to the amorphous Tanga Tanga movement has gone underground.
Sources say the man took cover after his cash got finished.
But locals are giggling their heads off because less than a month ago, the man bragged that he could cook githeri using banknotes.
Mheshimiwa now avoids supporters because he fears they will ask for something small, yet he does not even have chewing gum in his pockets.
So bad is the situation that the man recently skipped a fundraiser, only sending a Sh5,000, claiming he had an urgent commitment out of the country.
But those in the know say the man’s source of funding has been cut off.
