Fake Weekly Citizen Newspaper facebook targets Sonko,Mbugua


The management of Weekly Citizen newspaper has raised red flag over fake facebook account causing confusions among our readers.

The owners of the fake facebook account ‘Citizen Weekly’ are undertaking illegal work against the intellectual property right law.

We are reliably informed how they have acted out of ethics in their attempts to masquerade as our genuine facebook page.

To that effect we bring to the attention of investigating authorities including cyber-crime unit, the activities of  criminal gangs operating the fake page ‘Citizen Weekly ‘,contact phone number 0705716327 registered under one Hannah Wangui Gatune.

Our move has been inspired by the rising concerns from our beloved readers who have expressed displeasure over the manner at which those behind the fake page have been posting articles in totally disregard to ethics.

Relatively Weekly Citizen newspaper has always been keen on giving its reportage in total conformity to ethical journalism.

We have also noted with great concern that the page has been practicing high degree of plagiarism through lifting stories our stories word by word to the fake  account ‘’Citizen Weekly’.

Plagiarism is a serious crime and therefore those behind the fake account have been warned of dire legal ramifications in our hell bent move to protect our integrity.

Most recently the criminals depicted Nairobi governor Mike Sonko and DCI as orchestrators of corruption at the County government.
