A photo doing rounds on social media platforms of Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua peeping through the window and looking at President William Ruto and King Charles III is photoshopped.

In the photo, President Ruto is directing King Charles to greet Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi with First Lady Rachel Ruto standing next to Ruto and Queen Camilla standing next to King Charles.
