Kisii Governor Simba Arati has relocated from County Council offices, citing “witchcraft.”
The iVerify Network of Fact-Checking Desks has fact-checked this content and established that it is False.
To arrive to this conclusion, the iVerify Network of Fact-Checking Desks has conducted the following process. On September 6, 2022, we contacted a senior county official, who confirmed that the information being circulated was propaganda and misleading.
We reviewed the media coverage of Governor Arati’s recent activities and discovered that he has been carrying out his duties from his office, the most recent of which was him going after the bosses of 861 government ghost workers who were pocketing monthly salaries without performing the work.
We also looked through the county boss’s social media accounts and found no such claims.
