WHATTHEFACT? NO! This letter by Kinyua to Moi is fake

Civil Service boss did not write to OKA

Head of the Civil Service Joseph Kinyua is today the victim of fake news. A curious tweet in response to a post by Ford Kenya Leader Moses Wetang’ula led us to it.

The missive is purportedly penned by Kinyua and addressed to Kanu Leader Gideon Moi, on behalf of the President Uhuru Kenyatta, stating that he (President) has cancelled all meetings with One Kenya Alliance (OKA) leaders and any other presidential candidate.

Furthermore, the “president” said that the OKA leaders were “trivializing the meetings…diverting the focus from his core core call for unity“.

We reached out to Mr. Kinyua who categorically stated that the document did not emanate from neither him nor his office. Secondly, the date format in the letter, is out of place; a visual sign of negligence on the forger’s part.

Finally, no reputable media house has covered the story even as a commentary. Being of great magnitude, it would have received wide coverage in all media. It has not, despite being a day old.
