According to Onyango, the photo looked like a stage-managed scene given that the vendor had only a few maize combs for sale and his pocket had a protruding object that appeared to be a walkie-talkie.

“I am in doubt on how he’s clad, you have seen maize roasters around and their dress code. Three, he’s roasting very few maize only designed for PR photography. Four, he forgot to hide the antenna of his walkie-talkie. I would refuse to take pictures meant to hoodwink Kenyans on basis of one reaching down to people of all levels. This is a member of SWAT,” the journalist claimed captioned by photo below.

Numerous social media users picked up the PR photo with their own analysis of the situation.
