IRIE FM – Following his heroics for Pakistan Super League (PSL) team Peshawar Zalmi, owner Javed Afridi announced via his twitter account that a request would be made to the government to grant Sammy’s citizen status.
Pakistan chief minister Pervaiz Khattak immediately seemed to acknowledge the request via twitter declaring that the status had been granted to the West Indies player. Sammy accepted the honour with a tweet in Pashto an Indo-Iranian dialect.
However it turned out that the account for minister Khattak was fake and even if the account was real the minister did not have the authority to make such a decision.
In addition if such an honour were being conferred upon the West Indies player it would also have been unlikely to be done via the worldwide web.
