Last week, Cord leader Raila Odinga was rushed to Karen Hospital after some food poisoning.

There was panic among some of his supporters, who interpreted the headlines as an attempt on Raila’s life. Many Kenyans think that ‘food poisoning’ literally means adding poison to food with evil intent.

Anyway, Raila came out to clarify, but our neighbours in Uganda were not convinced.

Notorious gutter newspaper ‘Red Pepper‘ published a very sensational headline on Friday.

“Former Kenyan PM, Raila Rushed To Hospital After Viagra Overdose,” screamed the headline in a huge font. Accompanying the story was a photo of Nairobi Woman Rep, Rachel Shebesh, and it’s clear what message they were trying to pass by including her in the story.

Well, it is now clear that the editors of Red Pepper sit down and make up stories. The very definition of FAKE NEWS.
