A photo with the caption reading, “Kenyans set fire to the parliament of their country” is circulating on social media.
According to our technical investigation, it was revealed that the photo is of the Burkina Faso parliament being set on fire from the website “The Telegraph”.
The immediate conflict among Burkina Faso residents is a constitutional change that would allow President Blaise Comport to extend his 27-year administration term.
The incident took place on 30th October 2014, and the main theme of the struggle was “We need a change. He must go!”.
Therefore, the above photo is not a photo of the Parliament set on fire in Kenya, but a photo of the conflict in Burkina Faso.
