Image of Ruto with a panga as he addresses crowd is altered

 

A photo shared on Facebook appearing to show Deputy President William Ruto holding a panga is ALTERED.

In the photo, the deputy president appears to be holding a panga in his right hand and a microphone on the left as a huge crowd throngs his motorcade. The text on the post says, “Ruto has been staging attacks to attract sympathy.”

However, a Google reverse image search and an online search reveals that the original photo, which was first seen online in October 2020, shows Ruto addressing a crowd and gesturing with his right hand. The open palm has no panga. 

The only item he is holding is the microphone in his left hand.
