Does This Image Show a Luo Woman Apparently Attacked by Raila Odinga Goons?

This image shared here, here, here and here on Twitter and Facebook contains claims alleging that it was taken in Kondele, Kisumu County and that it shows a woman allegedly attacked by goons as she was trying to sell eggs. 

The claim was most notably shared here by lawyer Dr Miguna Miguna on his official Twitter handle on March 11, 2023, raking in more than 500,000 views. 


Azimio La Umoja Party Leader Raila Odinga declared countrywide protests against the high cost of living on March 9, 2023. Another demand by the coalition is that the government opens the election servers for an audit of 2022’s general election.

“We launch a campaign of defiance, of peaceful picketing, peaceful protests, boycotts, strikes, disobedience, peaceful petitions, peaceful sit-ins and peaceful demonstrations and it begins today and now,” Raila Odinga said.

President William Ruto however maintained that his mandate is to deliver on his campaign promises. “We will not do what you want, I will ensure this country is rooted within the law, don’t waste your time, whatever it is that the law allows, you do it,” he said


A reverse image search of the image reveals that it has been used in different contexts over the years with the earliest being here on January 22, 2020. The same image was also used here on May 13, 2021, on a Nigerian internet forum NairaLand.

Further analysis of the image proves that the image was taken in Nigeria. The box lying next to the eggs is labeled Imperio International Limited, a cosmetics brand based in Nigeria. The logo on the box matches the logo of Imperio Cosmetics Nigeria. See screen grabs below.


Claims that the image was taken in Kondele, Kisumu County are FALSE.
