Kenya: Kenyan photographer banned on Facebook for “controversial” statements

Kenyan photographer is banned from Facebook because of statements calling for political change: “Commenting on the issue he said, “I was removed from Facebook due to controversial updates calling for political change and the youth to stop hero worshiping tribal leaders who have messed up our country.” One of his last comments before his profile was deleted was “Kenyans elect criminals to parliament all you need is money to get elected.” He had over 1,500 friends.”
