Nyakundi suspended from Twitter after posting media boss’ nudes
Controversial blogger Cyprian Nyakundi has received another blow from Twitter after his account was suspended.
Trouble for Nyakundi deepened on Monday when tweeted photos of a media house boss in a compromising situation with two women.
Earlier this month, he saw the number of his followers dwindle from 1.2 million to just below 700,000 when Twitter waged war on dormant accounts.
The blogger is widely known for his penchant in posting controversial content on his social media handles that has landed him in jail several times.
In April this year, the blogger spent two nights in jail for posting online derogatory remarks against Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru, Nairobi’s Mike Sonko and Kenya Power Managing Director Ken Tarus.
He has also ended up in court after posting stuff about former Bidco CEO Vimal Shah and Safaricom CEO Bob Collymore.
Mr Nyakundi was also charged in a Kiambu court with posting hate speech content against the Kikuyu community on social media.
Kenyans on Twitter gave mixed reactions following this new development with some happy with the suspension while others expressed melancholy.
I just called @C_NyaKundiH and he is fine. He tells me that his account was suspended after leaking a photo of some media house’s boss. He is in contact with @Twitter and he wants me to assure #KOT that the boy child president is coming back!#BringBackNyakundi #NRGBreakfastClub
