Kenyans on Twitter on Tuesday criticized President Uhuru Kenyatta’s delegation to the US for failure to take notes during the meeting with his counterpart Donald Trump.
President Uhuru Kenyatta on Monday 28 August met United States of America President Donald J.Trump at the White House and held bilateral talks on areas of trade and security.
Kenyans complained that the Uhuru’s team went unprepared for the talks while the US delegation is seen with notebooks and pens, taking points from the deliberations.
“Kenyan officials never take notes during official meetings with foreign states. We can never make progress,” one netizen remarked.
“Now this one is from Wakanda? So American government delegation takes notes but Kenyans are sophisticated, because of vibranium and do not need to? We record blah blah! Say it loud, record and play to yourself girl!” another added.
“Just smiling like adverts when all this is at the tax I pay. Cry my beloved country!” a netizen lamented.
The meeting of the two presidents came with goodies as they witnessed the signing of two deals worth $238 million .Overseas Private Investment Corporation (Opic) in conjunction with Kipeto Wind Energy Company are set to construct and operate a 100- megawatt grid-connected wind power plant in South of Nairobi.

Another $5 million letter of commitment was signed when President Kenyatta met executives of leading US companies under the Business Council for International Understanding (BCIU) that will see the broadening of the distribution network of Twiga Foods and improve food security in the country.
Addressing the business leaders, President Kenyatta promised to ensure that no hurdles will curtail efforts of those intending to invest in the country reminding them of the commitment by the Kenyan government urging them to take advantage presented by the Big Four Agenda blueprint projects.
The meeting with President @realDonaldTrump was fruitful. We discussed security, especially the fight against terrorism. We also discussed how to increase trade and investment between our two countries and how US companies can help create jobs for our youth #KenyaUSrelations
