President Uhuru Kenyatta's social media pages were on Friday deleted.

It was not immediately clear the circumstances under which the Facebook and Twitter pages were all deleted barely two hours after the President wrote of his displeasure with corruption.

"If you are corrupt we will fight you. You can be my brother or my sister or my closest political ally, but if you are corrupt we will fight you,” the President said early on Friday morning.

President Kenyatta has hitherto been the head of state with the largest social media following in Africa.

UPDATE: President Kenyatta's Chief of Staff Nzioka Waita later explained that the social media pages after some unidentified individuals irregularly accessed them.
