This screenshot of a purported NTV Kenya post quoting Kericho Deputy Governor Fredrick Kirui telling Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua to keep off the Londiani Junction accident investigation is FAKE.
“DP Gachagua must keep off the Londiani investigation process, his sudden intervention is not a coincidence with Governor Mutai’s silence,” the quote states.
The quote is accompanied by an image of the deputy governor.
We performed a keyword search both on the station’s Facebook page and X account (formerly Twitter) to confirm if the screenshot was published by NTV Kenya. Our search did not yield any positive results.
We reached out to Maureen Kimotho, the multimedia producer at NTV Kenya, who denounced the screenshot.
