Google Explains Why Andrew Kibe YouTube Channel was Terminated


Google’s head of communications and public affairs for Africa, Dorothy Ooko, has responded to the termination of Andrew Kibe YouTube channel.

Kibe had more than 400,000 subscribers to his YouTube account.

Ooko clarified that Kibe’s channels were terminated as a result of violations of the platform’s rules.

This was in response to a query by a user going by the name of Mariam on September 18.

“Cancel culture cannot 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,” Mariam posted.

Ooko said that the creator was initially blocked from uploading videos. However, he attempted to get around Google’s restrictions by posting videos on a different channel.

“Kibe violated YouTube’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.”

In a rejoinder, Andrew Kibe expressed his reservations about the explanation given for the termination.

He claimed that he had not received official notice of the closure of his channels, and he asked for clarification on the specific terms he had specifically violated.

“Sounds so pedestrian. Can you show me the emails with the violations? That is the procedure, right?

“I mean, there is no way YouTube permanently blocks any channel with over 3,000 videos with no paper trail. Be serious with your job,” Kibe said.

The shutting down of Andrew Kibe YouTube has been a trending topic in the country and has elicited mixed reactions from netizens.
