Description

A man with long hair and a beard to match has been hailed as JESUS as he travels across Africa.

Daniel Christos might have the look - and a similar name - to the Son of God, but that's where the similarities end, he insists.

Walking with a staff and wearing flowing robes, Daniel says that he has been greeted as people screamed 'Jesus, welcome back Jesus'.

The backpacker from Perth, Australia has been travelling in Kenya and Ethiopia in recent months, but he took to Facebook on November 25 when a friend showed him an image which was circulation online.

The poster writes: "We want to set a committee to look for him from town to Ngong Hills [near Nairobi]... Crucify him there with two thieves... then leave him there to die.

"On Friday we take him to Lang'ata [a suburb of Nairobi] and we will check his grave on Monday."

Daniel, a computer science graduate, says that he has been welcomed in the country - but he has never called himself the Messiah.

"I have been welcomed with so much enthusiasm like I've never experienced before in my life. In fact it's been so extreme that it's been a little overwhelming.

"I feel a little concerned by this person's comments. I don't know who wrote it and I don't know if it was just a joke or if they were serous, but it has made me a little uncomfortable to walk in the streets of Nairobi."

There's even been a #JesusinNairobi hashtag tracking his movement on social networks, which has added to Daniel's discomfort.
