The graphic looks as though it was published by news outlet the Nation.
“Now that Raila has picked Karua, criminals and looters of public funds have nowhere to hide. Those pilfering public funds have a reason be very afraid of Senior Counsel Martha Karua as DP and Justice Minister,” the quote reads, next to a photo of Abdullahi.
Abdullahi is a senior counsel, a privileged position in the legal field in Kenya. He has over 1.6 million followers on Twitter, is a publisher of an influential law magazine, and his views make news in the country.
Abdullahi has previously vowed to not support Odinga’s presidential bid. But has he made an about-turn and did the Nation publish this quote?
No evidence of quote
We also couldn’t find any evidence on Abdullahi’s Twitter timeline that he said the quote and it wasn’t reported by any reputable news outlet.
“FAKE NEWS ALERT! Please be advised that this card doing rounds on social media is fake. Do not fall for fake news,” the Nation posted.
