Former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko's Facebook account has been disabled.

The account with over  2.5 million followers has been disabled due to remarks he made about the LGBTQ community.

He is being told to apologize to the community and appeal to Facebook something he says that he will not do. 

"Hawa masonga wa LGBTQ wako na nguvu. Wamecomplain to FB mpaka my page of 2,500,000 followers ikakuwa disabled till I apologise to them then appeal to FB. I can't & will not apologise to them. Hapa tweeter muko 2,300,000 followers & still growing like Bush fire. ALLUTA CONTINUA." The businessman tweeted.

Few days ago, Sonko posted a video saying that LGBTQ should be prohibited since it messes the young people and captioned;

"Usonga should be prohibited here in Kenya before it messes our young generation. So far I have only rewarded 96k to a group of 3 people who sent me a video of a male songa who was found red handed in a guest house having an affair with another man."

 Weeks ago after Daddy Owen's Instagram was shadow banned for his controversial comment on LGBTQ and he stated that he had received two warning and it meant that if searched for his page directly on Instagram, they will not be able to find it.

This comes a month after  the Supreme Court of Kenya ruled that the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) community have the right to association and they  held that the board’s decision to refuse registration of an LGBTQ+ group was “unreasonable and unjustified”.

The court's controversial ruling divided  Kenyans and it was something of interest to many.
