ghaflaNews broke yesterday that Ghafla Kenya had been acquired by Swiss media conglomerate Ringier.

The news was broken by tech blog Techweez, and trended for the better part of yesterday.

However, all traces of the information have been deleted from the site, and other blogs which had reported on the same.

CEO Samuel Majani confirmed that the story was not true, but did not state whether there are any discussions ongoing on a possible acquisition.

Ghafla is Kenya’s pioneer entertainment blog, and still one of the most trafficked.
