Robertson made the remarks last week while answering a question his show “The 700 Club” from a viewer about whether a planned trip to Kenya is risky.

Robertson responded: “You might get Aids in Kenya. The people have Aids in Kenya. The towels could have Aids.”

Kenyans on social media are demanding that Robertson apologises personally on the TV show.

One Nairobi resident, Terry Kamau, said he was angered by the remarks, especially since they came from a man her family grew up watching on TV.
