Standard Media Group has made a statement in regard to a story doing round on why President Uhuru Kenyatta avoided DP Ruto at the airport.
Standard Media Group has termed the story as inaccurate, false and based on propaganda and it does not reflect the editorial stand of the Standard Newspaper but the personal opinion of Ochieng Rapuro, the new Editor-in-Chief.
“Our attention has been drawn towards this letter circulating on various social media platforms with regards to a story done by The Standard. We urge our loyal audience to dismiss the letter as fake and support us in combating fake news.” Said Standard Media Group
