Uhuru had deactivated his accounts in March 2019 citing the intriguing and the endless trolls he had received over the years.
“You see I left Twitter and other social media sites because I saw they are full of insults and nothing constructive. You sit there reading the comments instead of sleeping. ‘Oh, what have they said?
“They make calls asking people to see how the trolls have attacked. I would rather sleep or talk to my wife," Uhuru said during an interview in 2020.
However, the former State House Chief of Staff Nzioka Waita said that Uhuru had exited social media since there were "unauthorized" individuals with access to his accounts.
"All official social media handles for the President have been temporarily suspended to allow for the necessary remedial measures to be undertaken," Waita said.
