A photo doing the rounds on Facebook and Twitter in Kenya shows a wheelbarrow lying on its side. Several crates of eggs have fallen to the ground and some of the eggs are broken.

The photo has been posted with the claim that it shows a business run by a resident of Kisumu county in western Kenya, destroyed by supporters of Kenyan opposition leader Raila Odinga.

One caption reads: “This is a Luo woman struggling to sell eggs and put food on the table for her children. But this guys that demostrares in kisumu  DESTROY all her eggs in Kisumu because Raila has ORDERED Luos not to eat eggs!” The user then asks Kenyans to “shun” politicians.

Other versions of the claim say the incident happened specifically in Kondele, an administrative ward in the county.

Odinga is the leader of the Azimio la Umoja coalition. He lost the 9 August 2022 election to incumbent president William Ruto. He rejected the results and has said Ruto’s government is illegitimate.
