In March 2019, the president’s official Twitter handle was deactivated and vanished. While many thought this would be temporary, it never became the case.

Before the account was deleted, this what it read. “If you are corrupt we will fight you. You can be my brother or my sister or my closest political ally. I won’t be clouded by ethnicity or status in my quest to leave behind a united nation and I will continue championing for Kenya’s unity.”

Later on, statehouse made a statement over the decision to suspend the account.

“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,” said  Nzioka Waita, Chief Of Staff, Office of The President.
