This Facebook post with a photo supposedly of a settlement in South Sudan is FALSE.
The image depicts tens of colourful houses. The accompanying text reads: “South Sudan”.
But is the photo of any part of South Sudan?
PesaCheck has previously debunked this image in French. In January 2023, we looked into a similar image purportedly of an aerial view of 1,008 homes in Bamako, Mali.
In June 2023, the same image was shared on Facebook with a caption claiming that it is Boiman town in Nyandarua, Kenya.
PesaCheck examined a Facebook post with a photo supposedly of a settlement in South Sudan and found it to be FALSE.
This post is part of an ongoing series of PesaCheck fact-checks examining content marked as potential misinformation on Facebook and other social media platforms.
By partnering with Facebook and similar social media platforms, third-party fact-checking organisations like PesaCheck are helping to sort fact from fiction. We do this by giving the public deeper insight and context to posts they see in their social media feeds.
