You will not be able to follow, like or comment on President Kenyatta's social media accounts, at least for now.

This is after the head of state suspended all his social media handles on Friday morning over unauthorised access by some staff in his office.

This sparked off speculation on Twitter that one of Africa's Twitter presidents had been suspended by the microblog.
