On Friday 20th of June, a newspaper headline emerged in Facebook  claiming immediate former majority leader in the senate Kipchumba Murkomen was arrested . According the the headline(below), the latter was arrested in connection to an ongoing investigation on National Youth Service corruption scandal. In the photo it also claimed that Murkomen is associated  Josephine Kabura who was implicated in the named scandal.

Mtaani Radio have fact-check desk have looked into the claim. Checking in his twitter handle there are no reports of arrests  for questioning. Secondly, no media house or website reported arrest of the said leader. The Original headline of the said shows day are completely different. We can firmly conclude that the Elgeyo Marakwet Senator was not arrested and therefore the  headline is FAKE.
