Is This Digital Card From KBC?

Attached to this tweet is a digital card allegedly shared by KBC. The digital card bears sentiments supposedly shared by Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Nyeri Antony Muheria on Kenya Kwanza-led thanksgiving services.


Most Kenyans identify Archbishop Antony Muheria as the religious leader who officiated retired  President Mwai Kibaki’s funeral. His reaction to a man who attempted to access the podium endeared him to Kenyans.


The remarks were allegedly made on February 5, 2023, in an interview on Citizen TV’s Sunday Live. In the recording uploaded on Citizen TV’s official YouTube channel, the Archbishop does not call out the Kenya Kwanza government for dwelling on political events disguised as thanksgiving services. The digital card takes his comments out of context.

In a trimmed clip shared on Citizen TV’s official Twitter handle, the Archbishop is responding to a question on whether plans shared by Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua to attend church service every Sunday are prayers or politics. He starts by saying that he would not like to judge the Deputy President or the statement and says it is alright for them to attend church for the next five years and the rest of their lives. 

Through his official Twitter handle, Muheria dismissed the message on the digital card as inaccurate and shared a clip of what he said. Similarly, KBC has not uploaded the digital card on its official Twitter handle nor was it uploaded on its Facebook page.


The digital card supposedly shared by KBC is FAKE.
