The Council of Governors (CoG) was faced with criticism from Kenyans on Twitter after retweeting an ‘indecent’ post on August 5 Monday.

The tweet which was posted by a Twitter user identified as Taruri Gatere contained vulgar language relating to a sexual conversation.

The retweet went viral with most Kenyans questioning if the CoG Twitter account had been hacked.
