During One Planet Summit in Nairobi on Thursday Uhuru Kenyatta ended up being the topic of discussion yet again among Kenyans online following a warm moment he shared with former CNN journalist Zain Varjee.
In the fourth session of the United Nations Environment Assembly which went down at the UN office Gigiri, Uhuru collided with Varjee and gave her a warm, tight hug.
The two embraced each other deeply as other leaders including, Opposition chief Raila Odinga, watched on and Kenyans immediately turned the moment into a joke.
Many were quick to make fun of Uhuru, who doesn’t gave such hugs often, and a “jealous” Raila who stared right next to him.
Here are some of the tweets that Kenyans posted:
OK, hug me like Uhuru hugs. If uhuru hug was developments, we'd Shadow China in GDP! 😀 pic.twitter.com/80fq6whykm
