IN SHORT: A photo claiming to show Kenyan politician Kalonzo Musyoka meeting president William Ruto in 2022 for a political deal was actually taken in 2018.

A photo doing the rounds on Facebook shows newly inaugurated Kenyan president William Ruto and Wiper Democratic Movement party leader Kalonzo Musyoka embracing.

Facebook users who posted it claimed it showed the two meeting on 9 September 2022 in Karen for a discussion to have Musyoka join Ruto’s government. 

As the deputy president, Ruto’s official residence was in Karen, a suburb of the capital Nairobi. He has since moved to State House, the presidential residence, after he was sworn in.
