An image circulating on Facebook in July 2022 shows a convoy of vehicles, apparently preparing to transport security personnel.

Kenyan Facebook users who posted it claimed the vehicles were headed for Eldoret town in Uasin Gishu county ahead of Kenya’s 9 August 2022 general elections.

 “These police vehicles were spotted leading to eldoret town as opposed to previous elections when you could see them to Kisumu,” reads one caption.

Eldoret is the hometown of Kenyan deputy president William Ruto who was declared president-elect on 15 August. 

There have been violent clashes between the Kikuyu and the Kalenjin communities living in the county in the past, notably after the disputed 2007 general election.
