Clickbait post uses image of 2013 Kenyan ferry tragedy to boost followers on Telegram

A Facebook post that invites people to view a “trending video” of a collision between a ferry and a lorry in Kenya has been shared in groups with thousands of followers. The claim, however, is misleading; an image included in the post shows an accident at Kenya’s Likoni Ferry nine years ago. Furthermore, the link to a promised video of the incident is nothing more than clickbait to entice people to join an unrelated Telegram group.
