President ‘Uhuru’s’ twitter account given to Uganda’s police boss
The account @_Ukenyatta was mostly used during campaigns. Kenyans were engaged through the twitter handle.
A section of Ugandans who were keen to follow and notice the sudden changes were angered with the turn of events.
According to reports the account is operated by a Kenyan PR guru known as Cynthia Nyamai and they are said to be the ones who modified President ‘Uhuru’s’ account on March 4 and gave it to the newly appointed Uganda police boss
Uganda’s police however confirmed that it was not the IGP’s official account in a tweet by Uganda Police Force. It read;
“Please note that none of the accounts below are the official accounts of the the Inspector General of Police. We will share the details of his account in due course.
