The words “Holy Bible” on the brown book in Odinga’s hands appear to be flipped, indicating he is holding the book the wrong side up.
Did Odinga really read the holy book upside down? We checked.
One of the four photos shared shows Odinga reading a brown copy of The Living Bible – the right way up.
According to the tweet, Odinga was at a meeting with clergy from all the 47 counties of Kenya.
It reads: “It was heartening to exchange views on pertinent issues with clergy drawn from all the 47 counties at Ufungamano House, Nairobi county.”
The photo shared on Facebook was photoshopped, to give the impression Odinga was reading the Bible upside down.
