This Facebook post with an image of a crater on a landscaped hill surrounded by settlements, supposedly in Longisa, Bomet County, Kenya, is FALSE.

A watermark is visible at the bottom right corner of the image.

The text accompanying the image reads: “Longisa in Bomet to the World. Small heaven on earth (sic)”.

Bomet is a county in the Rift Valley region of Kenya. The area receives abundant rainfall throughout the year.

Some contrasting comments on the post raise doubts on whether the photo truly captures the region’s essence, prompting PesaCheck to investigate.
