A digital card that went viral on social media allegedly claiming that Former Mombasa Hassan Joho condemned Azimio protests is fake.
A section of Kenyans have been sharing the fake digital card bearing the trademarks of the Nation Media Group.
However, fact-checkers have established remarks were not made my Joho.
Nation media group whose fake sentiments were disguised has denied ownership of the card.
The alleged post read " The 2022 election was ours to lose and we lost. We had everything including the backing of president Uhuru Kenyatta. But we lost. It is good sportsmanship to lose with grace. Protests only add to our embarrassment and shame. We need to stop the noise, unite the country, and plan for 2027. Otherwise, we will again be caught unawares in the next election."
"Please be advised that this card doing rounds on social media is fake," they tweeted.
In August, Azimio leader Raila Odinga lost the presidential election to President William Ruto.
Raila on August 16 moved to the Supreme Court of Kenya to challenge the presidential results announced by Ex-IEBC chair Wafula Chebukati.
On September 26, the Supreme Court nullified Raila's petition.
Raila has recently been holding mass actions on claims that the government is illegitimate and that the will of the people was overturned.
He is also calling for the government to reduce the cost of living.
