Digital card with Wavinya Ndeti promise on nurses is fake

By Vincent Ng’ethe

Wavinya Ndeti is vying to be the governor of Machakos County in Kenya’s August 2022 election. Machakos County borders the capital city, Nairobi.

Ndeti, whose Wiper Party is part of Raila Odinga’s Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition, has previously been targeted by false information on social media. 

More recently, a digital card with the logo of the news website that included words attributed to her was published. Ndeti is supposed to have said: “In100days as Machakos governor,  I’ll upgrade all nurses to be doctors.”

We contacted and asked them if the site had published a digital card quoting Ndeti with these words. They said they had not. “This is fake,” a staff member told us.
