This photo claiming William Ruto’s wife Racheal Ruto is facing domestic violence and abuse victim on twitter that was posted on 26th May is false.

A twitter post emerged with a photo of DP Ruto’s wife Rachael Ruto swollen face allegedly beaten by husband.  

Our fact check desk have found out that the photo dates back on 12th June 2017 when it was used in a local blog Kenyans.co.ke. When Deputy President William Ruto’s wife interceded on behalf of the Jubilee government asking Kenyans to forgive them for their failures in their first term.

Rachel was speaking during a prayer rally at Central Park in Nanyuki, acknowledging that indeed there are some aspects where the government performed poorly and had failed to meet people’s expectations.

Mtaani Radio fact check desk looked into a post claiming to show it is a recent photo and found it to be FALSE. The photo hence does not represent the abuse allegations being reported.
