Yesterday, a letter bearing the names of Jubilee Party candidates for the Kibra Constituency seat was shared on social media.
The letter bore the names of 5 candidates among them footballer MacDonald Mariga Wanyama.
Jubilee later distanced itself from the letter and termed it as fake.
Deputy President William Ruto’s propagandist Dennis Ole Itumbi then had a hard time convincing the public that he is not the Lord of Fake News.
However, today, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), through a few tweets, has clarified that the letter Itumbi shared is the one it received from Jubilee Party.
The Kibra seat fell vacant after the death of Great Member of National Assembly Ken Okoth in July.
Here are the tweets
@IEBCKenya received a letter, on Monday 26th August 2019 at 5pm, forwarding names of aspirants of Jubilee Party for the Kibra by election. However, it has come to the attention of the Commission that Jubilee Party has denied authoring the said letter and termed it as FAKE. ^EA
