CAIRO – 21 April 2019: The electronic committees linked to the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood posted fabricated photos of the ongoing referendum on the constitutional amendments in Egypt, the photos claim that the Egyptian army is distributing foodstuffs to Egyptian voters in order to make them vote in favor of the amendments.
However, the photos have been confirmed to date back to June 2018, where the army distributed foodstuffs to poor citizens in El-Mahalla governorate.
Another distortion attempt was the photos of foodstuffs boxes with the logo of Nation's Future Party on them. The outlawed Muslim Brotherhood electronic committees circulated the photos claiming that the party is giving away the foodstuffs as a bribe to encourage citizens into voting.
