Kenyans Slam International News Firm For Posting That Rigging Allegations Have Begun In Kenya

On Friday August 12th, 2022, Kenyans took out their frustrations on an international news firm for posting on their Twitter account that, "Rigging allegations begin as Kenyan media slow tally of votes in tight presidential race."

The post was posted by a London-based international News Firm referred to as Reuters.

On their website, the London based news firm went ahead to state that, the secretary-general of Kenya's governing party (without providing any proof) has said that the country's elections were rigged hence fuelling public anxiety on Friday as media houses significantly slowed down their unofficial tallies of the presidential vote.

The news firm also mentioned the fact that Kenya has a history of violent election disputes with more than 1,200 people being killed after the 2007 elections and more than 100 after the 2017 elections.

The post by Reuters, was however met unkindly by angry Kenyans who took this as some kind of misinformation since there has not been any rigging claims as alleged by the Reuters Firm.

Below are some of the comments from netizens on Twitter:
