Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka has dismissed social media claims of the death of his wife, Florence Musyoka.
In a statement on Sunday, SKM Command Centre Head of Communications Paloma Gatabaki said their party leader is disappointed at fake news circulating on Twitter claiming Mama Pauline had succumbed.
“This is fake news. It is unfortunate we live in a time when people spend their minutes trying to get the most clicks and not tell the
truth. It is sad that the spinners of hateful, horrific and fake stories show no evidence of regret nor remorse for the damage they do,” Gatabaki said.
Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua, had already condoled with Kalonzo’s family for the alleged loss. But he has since retracted the statement and apologised.
“I want to apologies for the earlier post about the family of Kalonzo Musyoka. This was a result of misinformation and a hoax from several players, some seemingly credible and close to Kalonzo, who made it seem like a message to me about the family,” Mutua said in his post.
Pauline has been sickly since 2015, and has had to be treated abroad a number of times. She was first admitted to the Nairobi Hospital in December 2015 but details of her ailment remain private.
