A video has been shared online in Kenya alongside a claim that it shows the unveiling of a portrait in the US featuring Martha Karua, who is running for deputy president in Kenya’s upcoming elections. But the claim is false: AFP Fact Check found that the clip was doctored to add Karua’s image. The video originally showed the unveiling of Michelle Obama’s official portrait at the National Portrait Gallery in the US in 2018.
