They say a lie travels around the globe while the truth is putting on its shoes. Unfortunately this is the world that we live in, as US President Donald Trump would put it a world of fake news.
With social media, misleading news spread like bush like with the case of the lie that legendary radio presenter Lenard Mambo Mbotela spread by bloggers most notably Cyprian Nyakundi. However the controversial blogger has since apologized to Mr Mbotela.
The latest false Information to go around the inter webs is that fallen aide of retired President Moi Nicholas Biwott will be buried in a gold-encrusted casket.
A Google search of the picture of the gold casket going round reveals that it belongs to Nigerian shrewd businesswoman and politician Mama Hannah Idowu Dideolu Awolowo, alias HID, who was laid to rest on September 19, 2015.
According to Wikipedia, HID was the First Lady of Western Region, Nigeria and held the chieftaincy of the Yeye Oodua of Yorubaland.
There you go don’t expect any Gold casket during Biwott’s final journey.
