You will not be able to access President Uhuru Kenyatta through his official twitter account.

The President’s account with 3.6 million followers was suspended on Friday over an alleged unauthorized access.

State House Chief of Staff Nzioka Waita announced the suspension through social media.

“On account of unauthorized access to the official social media handles of H.E the President of the Republic of Kenya, Uhuru Kenyatta. All official social media handles for the President have been temporarily suspended to allow for the necessary remedial measures to be undertaken,” Nzioka wrote on twitter.

The suspension came barely hours after President Kenyatta posted about fighting corrupt individuals no matter their ethnicity or family status.
