The head of Communication for Google Africa Dorothy Ooko has shared the reasons behind the termination of YouTube account belonging to Andrew Kibe.
Through a tweet, Ooko revealed that the former Kiss FM presenter lost his account not because of the content he shared but because of violating YouTube’s terms of service.
According to her, the controversial content creator had been restricted from using certain features but he used another channel to do so.
“Kibe had tried to bypass restrictions by using another channel resulting in the termination of all his channels,” Ooko wrote.
“Kibe violated You tube’s terms of service, while he was restricted from using YouTube features including uploading videos on his channel, he used another channel to get around these restrictions aka circumvention, resulting in termination of all his channels,” she added.

Ooko was reacting to a tweet by Mariam Wairimu who claimed that the closure of Kibe’s account was a personal attack.
“Cancel culture can not be allowed to take root in content creation.@kibeandy termination of YouTube accounts is NOT about his message but a direct attack on the creative. Restore his accounts. Say NO to CANCEL CULTURE, “Wairimu said.
Kibe lost his YouTube channel a week ago. The former radio host was however not shaken by the notification he received about the termination.
“Train ili toka stenje kitambo, hizi ni kelele za chura. Time ya LIVE ni ile ile aisay,”he reacted to the notice
Later, Kibe claimed that he had foreseen the termination of his account. He has since opted to take his content to other social media platforms including Yafreeka.
