The lady, Rosa Elena Vargas, lacks the pedigree of Santos whose family has been one of the most powerful in Colombian politics and media.
Instead, Vargas told local media, she works as a cleaning lady in an office in Colombia’s second largest city.
“Everybody is making fun of me because I look like Santos. We’ve been laughing all day,” the 53-year-old woman told national television network Caracol.
According to Vargas, she has no problem with her apparent similarity to the president as she’s a self-proclaimed supporter of the head of state.
“I would love to meet him to see if we can compare ourselves,” said Vargas.
