A photo doing the rounds on Facebook in Kenya shows a concrete pillar supporting an elevated highway that appears to be collapsing.
It was posted with the claim that it shows a highway in Kenya constructed during former president Uhuru Kenyatta’s regime. Kenyatta was in power from 2013 to 2022.
“This is what Uhuru did through engineer Raila Odinga through some illegal contracts,” the caption reads.
Odinga is the leader of the Azimio la Umoja coalition. Public records show he studied engineering in school.
Once bitter political rivals, Kenyatta and Odinga reconciled in March 2018 in a deal popularly referred to as the “handshake”. Odinga even got the support of Kenyatta during the 9 August 2022 election, though he lost to incumbent president William Ruto.
