A document shared dozens of times on Facebook purports to show a witness statement from Kenyan lawyer Paul Gicheru, who handed himself in to face accusations at the International Criminal Court (ICC) of bribing witnesses in a botched case against Kenyan Deputy President William Ruto. However, this document is not genuine. The ICC, which has not published any witness statement in this case, confirmed it was fake.
