Concerning the 'circulating news' about Mwai Kibaki

Yesterday was awash with rumours that Mwai Kibaki, former president of Kenya had died at his Othaya home. Web traffic flowed to Kenya formums which had said thus: 
Incoming news have confirmed the demise of former President Mwai Kibaki. Kibaki died at his Othaya home around 2 hours ago and his body has been airlifted to Lee Funeral home . Mwai Kibaki was born on 15 November 1931 . He was the third President of Kenya, serving from December 2002 to April 2013. Further news have confirmed that he died due to high blood pressure and unavoidable stroke according to Kibaki’s personal physician, Dr Gikonyo. It is a very sad day in Kenya because the former president will be remembered for introducing free primary education and subsidized secondary education. We will keep praying for the Kibaki family so that God can give them strength in the trying moments . Various leaders have started sending their condolences . ” Kibaki was a great leader and Kenya will miss him, let us emulate his legacy and change Kenya ” Says a tweet from Aden Duale . Kenya is mourning. 

But it was confirmed that he is still alive and well and was actually playing golf at midnight when the rumours began. Here is what his communications manager said: 
It’s indeed very unfortunate that anyone would be reckless enough to spread malicious rumours. Those doing it and those who have encountered the rumour know exactly what I am making reference to. The truth is there is ABSOLUTELY nothing of the kind whatsoever.
