Your Tweet, My Right. Can a Public Figure block you from Accessing their Tweets?

In total agreement with the views expressed. If any case similar to the one
filed by the FAC against President Trump was to find its way to the Kenyan
Courts, I see them ruling in a like manner as the American Court since that
is what a proper interpretation of Art. 35 of the Constitution and Sec. 5
of the Access to Information Act calls for.
