Mayor Wasim Akram does have a nice ring to it.
You probably know Wasim Akram, the legendary Pakistani cricket player.
And his wife, Australian, Shaniera Akram, who is now a bhabi to every single Pakistani on the planet.
But somehow, a lot of people do not know about Wasim Akhtar, who has been the Mayor of Karachi since 2016.
Apparently, no one including newspapers really knows the guy since, well…
Wasim Akram woke up to some life-changing news, according to a newspaper, he was the Mayor of Karachi.
I though we cleared this up guys. You had one job to do 🤷♂️😄 pic.twitter.com/036wQmvCcr

Yeaaah…the importance of fact-checking is important, friends.
A newspaper reporter used the image of Wasim Akram the cricketer, instead of the accurate image of Wasim Akram, the Mayor of Karachi. The REAL Mayor of Karachi.
It’s this guy,
Just to make sure we all know.
And the funny thing is? This is not the first time this has happened.
I'm the Mayor??? This morning I woke up as Wasim Akram and next minute I'm the Mayor of Karachi. How am I doing?? https://t.co/gcN3YFPJL0

Nonetheless, Shaniera bhabi was surprised too.
You are the mayor of Karachi again ? Why are the wives always the last to know…🤷🏼♀️ https://t.co/sEl7HUkO3S

Ayyeeee, Bhabi got some jokes.
And everyone, in general, found her reaction as well as the entire situation pretty hilarious.

This one seems a little… shady.
There are so many other revelations that you are going to know shortly about WA. Keep an eye on him.

But overall, it was all in good fun.
He can't stop surprising you.

Some international fans were confused.
What does it say? from the replies — I can only speculate — are you the new mayor of Karachi? please tell me, the suspense is torturing me!!!
BTW – I always saw myself with the in-swigging yorker, too bad I'm right handed … I miss you 🙁

Don't know Urdu. What's this now

Some people were actually encouraging Wasim Akram to possibly pursue a political career.
Lols y not. if Arnold shwarznegger can be mayor y not you!
— Safiabegum (@Safiabegum12) January 21, 2018
Now maybe you should consider running for “Mayor “…?!

Well u would make a good mayor 😊

May be the Mayor of Karachi Kings, soon to be, @wasimakramlive 🙂

And honestly, it isn’t the worst idea considering our current Prime Minister Imran Khan also has a resume quite similar to Wasim Akram’s.
I mean Wasim Akram as our next Prime Minister and Shaniera Akram as the first lady would be goals. Who thinks that’s a good idea, raise your hands! I would totally vote for him.
The entire situation was downright hilarious and provided some laughs. What do you think about this mix-up by an Urdu newspaper? Let us know in the comments below!
