Star newspaper shamed after spreading fake news about musician's death
The Star sent out breaking news signals on their Twitter and SMS platforms about the death of the veteran musician.
They later deleted the misleading tweet after Kamaru denied reports that he had passed on.
Without an apology or statement of clarification, the Star quickly sent out another breaking news signal which quoted Kamaru dismissing the death reports.
Kenyans who had already noted the earlier message called out the media organisation to apologise and offer a clarification.
