Truth Revealed About The Standard's Cover Page Bearing Uhuru's Message to William Ruto

Kenyans get reliable news from renowned media houses on radio, television and newspapers. However, sometimes fraudsters hide behind big names and create fake news. The Standard Newspaper has found itself in such a place and has asked Kenyans to be vigilant about the fake news going around. In particular, the manipulated fake page bore Uhuru's alleged message to William Ruto as he was launching the expressway and the Eastern bypass.

The message read, "I've had... but did not harm you despite your insults." The author's interpretation read, "President Uhuru Kenyatta yesterday launched the Expressway and Eastern Bypass where he told off his deputy over claims that he would harm him," quoting pages 6 & 7 as shown below. As the Standard distanced itself from the front page, it left a message to Kenyans saying, "FAKE NEWS ALERT: This is NOT a genuine cover of the Standard newspaper. It is a manipulated front page. Be cautious not to fall for political propaganda and deep fakes during this electioneering season. Genuine newspaper front pages."
