On Saturday, Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka endorsed ODM leader Raila Odinga as the Azimio la Umoja Movement presidential flag bearer for the August 9, general elections.

Kalonzo said during the meeting that he took the move for the sake of the country’s unity.

However, since then, a number of fake news have been shared on social media claiming that some of Kalonzo’s close allies were against his step.

A post with quotes claiming to have originated from Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo Jnr is one of the fake news being circulated.

It claimed that:

“Kalonzo Musyoka made a personal decision, not of the community or the wiper party, we cannot be forced to Azimio, soon we are giving the direction wiper party and the community is going to take.”

In his official Twitter account, the senator flagged the statement as fake.

Also, the statement did not originate from KTN News social media account.

The media house denied producing such material.

A number of Kenyans including Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana fell into the trap of propaganda.
