State House Government Angered By Facebook Pages Impersonating Uhurus Family Members

Kenyan government spokesman is angered by the existence of Facebook pages impersonating the First family and state house. Through Facebook postings, Muthui Kariuki, is asking Kenyans to ignore the many Facebook pages  which have been created for the children of Uhuru Kenyatta.

In another Facebook post, the government spokesman added;

Facebook currently has hundreds of pages and accounts impersonating all manner of people. I would like to caution Kenyans that they do not share their personal details with any organization purporting to offer jobs unless they can provide a fixed address, land-line number and proper registration details. One such page ‘K24 Peace’ has been using the Presidential Standard and tweeked covers copied from the statehouse page. I ask Kenyans to be careful.

The Kenyan government is in a dilemma how to handle the many Facebook pages opened to impersonate various state organs and personnel.

State House has made great entry onto social media scene since when Uhuru was sworn in as President. The Presidency is now using Facebook and Twitter to share news and happenings with Kenyans.
