Focus shifts to cost of shuttle diplomacy after Amina’s bid at AU flops

Kenyans have camped on Twitter questioning the cost of shuttle diplomacy to campaign for Foreign Affairs CS Amina Mohamed’s failed bid to become the African Union Commission chairman.

The CS made innumerable trips across the continent to lobby for her candidacy, on some occasions being fortified by Deputy President William Ruto.

President Uhuru Kenyatta also met a number of heads of state to campaign for the CS.

However, Ms Mohammed was trounced by Chad’s Moussa Mahamat in the seventh round.

The cost of the campaign is yet to be released.

The questions

Even journalists joined the fray

Then the guesswork

So, how much did it cost?
