Hours after a man identified as Jeremiah Mwavuganga Samuel has been arrested by officers attached to the Directorate of Criminal Investigation.
According to the DCI through their social media accounts, the man is a teacher Musiini Pry Sch in Makueni and was arrested after having published the fake news on his Facebook page.
He is said to have been arrested in Makueni county after a lot of extensive forensic analysis to identify him by the officers.
They have also noted that he has been transferred to the DCI headquarters in Nairobi where charges that he will face on Monday are being prepared by the officers ahead of him being arraigned in court.
The DCI passes a stern warning to those who misuse social media platforms by authoring misleading messages, aimed at causing abject humiliation, blackmailing, defrauding and any such information that is punishable by law.
This is a great relief to Kenyans who have been having different people spread rumours against government officials which has since been put on notice.
