The legitimate Standard front page had a different headline.
This Facebook post with an image purportedly of the Standard newspaper’s 26 October 2023 front page is ALTERED.
The image claims that the publication’s front page had a headline reading “The lying president.”
‘Kenyans have now started to see the truth hata wengine wakinyamaza na kulalamika kimoyomoyo( even when others remain silent and complain inwardly) reads the post.
The image was shared after it emerged that the head of state had made 38 foreign trips between September 13, 2022 when he took office, and October 2023.
Browsing through the image, it is evident that the headline on the front page is inconsistent with the summary placed below it.
Moreover, the spacing between ‘The’ and ‘lying’ is unnecessarily huge, potentially indicating digital manipulation.
The front page we are debunking was altered by removing the letter ‘f’ from the word ‘flying’. With the exception of the headline, all other information on the front page remains unaltered.
The article linked to the front page was published here.
