The house belongs to Canadian ice hockey player Wayne Gretzky and is located in Thousand Oaks, California

A Facebook post with a photo claiming to show former President Uhuru Kenyatta’s new home in Maasai Mara, Narok County is FALSE. 

The photo was accompanied by a caption that reads: “Mr UK… Uhuru Kenyatta new

home..”Maasai mara…kwa wale mlisema oooh sijui ataenda ichaweri!? ..mnaskia aje hii maisha vile inawapeleka (to those who said he will go to Ichaweri.. How are you feeling now?) 

The photo was shared online following media reports that the former Head of State had settled at his farm in Narok County. 

But, does the house really belong to Uhuru Kenyatta? 

We performed a reverse image search on the photo and discovered that the house is located in Thousand Oaks, California in the United States of America, and not Maasai Mara as alleged. 

Additionally, we established that the house belongs to Canadian professional ice hockey legend Wayne Gretzky
