Ahead of the Kenyan general election on 9 August 2022, a screenshot of what looked like a Facebook post by Kenyan television station NTV Kenya was posted online. 

The post claimed politician Nelson Koech, who represented Belgut constituency in the national assembly between 2017 and 2022, was having “sleepless nights” because of his political rival. 

The screenshot linked Koech to an “unaccountable loss of KSh100 million” and an incomplete roads project worth KSh123 million. 

The screenshot was posted in July 2022 at the peak of election campaigning in Kenya. 

But was any of it true.
