ODM Director of Communications Philip Etale has gotten himself in trouble over an old photo purportedly from the scene of the violence that hit some parts of the country following the declaration of the 2017 presidential election winner.

Apparently, on Saturday Mr Etale posted on Twitter a photo of a seemingly shocked young boy which he captioned:

“Dear Matiang’i, SDA Church Elder. This shocked young kid is a CRIMINAL. According to you.”

But as it later turned out, the photo was actually taken during the 2007-08 post election violence and not the current spate of protests.

The photo, taken on January 17, 2008, by Walter Astrada, shows a young boy on a doorway screaming with the hand of a police officer holding a baton in the foreground.

He picture won Astrada first prize in the spot news singles category.

Here are some responses to Mr Etale’s goof from concerned Kenyans.
