As Kenya’s newly-elected governors were busy at an orientation retreat, posts started circulating on social media claiming that Joseph Ole Lenku from Kajiado county had been “elected” chairperson of the Council of Governors (CoG). But the claim is false: it was in fact Kirinyaga county’s Anne Waiguru who was chosen by consensus to become the council’s new chairperson.
