- The tweet on the screenshot is dated July 12, 2023.
- Miguna in July addressed the tweet and stamped it as fake.
A Twitter screenshot shared on different WhatsApp groups and on Facebook claiming to show Lawyer Miguna Miguna criticising President William Ruto and his deputy Rigathi Gachagua is Fake.
The screenshot reads: “It's now evident who the enemy of the people @WilliamRuto was never an option for Kenya and Having Rigathi Gachagua as his deputy, makes it even worser. A guy who can’t chair a room full of chiefs. How can he chair foreign delegates for diplomats”.
The tweet on the screenshot is dated July 12, 2023.
After a close look into Miguna’s official Twitter channel, the tweet does not appear.
The alleged tweet does not also follow the correct Twitter format as Twitter has the reply, retweet, like, number of views, and share engagement icons.
The tweets on the screenshot only have the reply, retweet, and like engagement buttons with the number of views icon missing.
Miguna in July addressed the tweet and stamped it as fake.
“Each sentence in the FAKE desk top created screenshots are ungrammatical and use none existent words like “worser”. Why use my name to try and sell your POISONS? Because Kuzimia knows that my name carries currency they lack: INTEGRITY. I won’t allow you to spread falsehoods using my name - FAKERS!,” Miguna tweeted.
