“Burkina Faso” was among the top ten trending topics in Kenya on Thursday morning, after an article headlined: 'Burkina Faso Parliament set ablaze' was retrieved from the archives and began circulating again online. Some 1,300 tweets were posted from Kenya about Burkina Faso on Thursday, some of them congratulating protesters in the west African country for setting the building on fire. Looking at the tweets as well as Facebook posts, it’s clear that some online users thought the fire had just happened. In fact, the parliament in Burkina Faso’s capital Ouagadougou was actually torched back in 2014. So why did it start trending again, on the other side of Africa, in July 2019?
