Barefoot Perth backpacker in Kenya is forced to deny he's Jesus - after being mobbed by fans for selfies

A bearded Australian backpacker in Kenya has been forced to deny that he is Jesus after he was mobbed by fans who wanted selfies, convinced that he is the messiah.

Dressed in long flowing robes and walking barefoot with a staff, pictures long-haired Daniel Christos went viral as people screamed 'Jesus, welcome back Jesus' at him after he arrived in Nairobi a fortnight ago.
'I am not Jesus! I have never pretended to be,' the former software engineer from Perth announced on Facebook.

Pictures of the computer science graduate are being posted with the hashtag #JesusinNairobi for followers to keep track of his movements.

'Every single corner I walk on in Nairobi I have noticed someone either taking a photo or video… while hundreds of times a day I hear people calling out "Jesus".'

In a television interview with channel NTV, Daniel described the attention he received as 'intense' and provided a detailed family history to distance himself from any links to the Virgin Mary.
