#BringBackNyankundi Trends on Twitter as Kenyans Protest Suspension of Influential Blogger, Nyankundi

Kenyans are crying foul over the suspension of the Twitter account of an influential blogger, Cyprian Nyankundi, who has garnered a huge following for exposing illicit government officials and deals.

Nyankundi, who calls himself the ‘Boychild president’ on Twitter was suspended on Monday, after he posted ‘compromising’ pictures of a prominent public figure.

He has since opened a new account and urged his followers to keep up with his updates on another platform.

Free expression doesn’t really mean much if people don’t feel safe.

Kenyans on Twitter have since started a #BringBackNyankundi campaign asking Twitter to revoke the suspension, arguing that Nyankundi has consistently exposed rot in the public service, and should not be penalised for that.


Nyankundi’s case is the latest high profile suspension of influencers in East Africa, as Twitter continues its notorious purge to rid the platform of ‘nots’ and non-compliant users.
