Text below reads: “EXPOSED: The Nairobian has learnt that the curvaceous Chemutai could be the reason Baba Abby and his son cannot see eye to eye and the reason why Nick Ruto refused to attend the UDA NDC.”
The paper is dated 8 to 14 April 2022. The Nairobian is a weekly newspaper published every Friday by the Standard Group.
But is this really a Nairobian front page? We checked.
‘This is NOT a genuine cover’
The headline is “JEALOUS LOVER OR LOVE TURNED SOUR?” The summary reads: “TRAGEDY AT HOME: Blood-stained panga, suicide and a confession that shocked the nation.” There’s no photo of Ruto or his son.
We searched Google the different story highlights appearing on the altered page in bid to find the edition used to make it.
The original headline reads: “I ENSUED RAILA WAS NOT POISONED – NJENGA.” There is no story about Ruto and his son.
The Nairobian has posted the altered front page on Facebook, stamped “FAKE!”
“FAKE NEWS ALERT: This is NOT a genuine cover of the Nairobian weekly newspaper. It is a manipulated front page,” the paper says in the post.
The Standard Group has also dismissed it as fake.
