Business came to a halt in the Central Business District as a man who looked like Jesus was spotted along Nairobi's Moi Avenue on Wednesday evening.

Dressed in a long rob, the long-haired, thick-bearded 'Jesus' drew people's attention as he made his way barefoot through the street.

His appearance resembled that of the Western image of Jesus Christ that has been etched in popular culture.

Kenyans on Twitter used the hashtag #JesusInNairobi to share their excitement, with many posting selfies they took with the unidentified man.

While some other Kenyans felt the attention given to the look-alike wasn't necessary, see some reactions below:
