Spreading fake news? - Ringtone on the spot over 'Karen Residents Association'

Be Aware


Gospel singer Ringtone Apoko is on the spot for purportedly faking a warning letter from “Karen Residents Association” over keeping 40 cows at his Karen home.

On Tuesday, the singer put up a letter that seemed to raise complaints about the cows at his residential home in Karen.

However, a spot check done by Pulselive.co.ke established that the letter was fake, as the body that represents Karen Residents is known as the Karen Lang’ata District Association (KLDA), and not Karen Residents Association.

Personal phone Number

This journalist called the phone number labelled on the letter, it however, directed us to a woman identified as Sharon living in Mamboleo, who told us that she is not associated with the said “Karen Residents Association” in any way and that’s her personal number.

Is Ringtone taking the public for a ride? Is he simply seeking attention?

In 2016, Ringtone was on the spot again claiming his Karen home was a place where he reared his chicken.

The Pamela hit maker has been profiled as an attention seeker in his attempt to remain relevant.

Steve Mbogo Helicopter

In December 2017, politician Steve Mbogo was also on the spot light for faking a letter from the non-existent “Karen Residents Association” complaining about noises caused by his alleged Helicopter.

The letter was supposedly authored by Karen Residents Association, and signed by its officials, but it also turned out to be fake.
