Kenyan Woman Accused of Telling Lies on Ellen Degeneres’ TV Show

When Achieng Agutu appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres show, she painted a portrait of a kid who was brought up in poverty.  Agutu said her family had struggled to keep her in school, including selling their land in Kenya to find money for her tuition fee. However, critics have cited the flashy lifestyle on display on her Instagram as proof that she lied about her background.
