Uhuru, Prince William handshake excites Kenyans

President Uhuru Kenyatta has excited social media with a picture showing him and Prince William shaking hands at the Buckingham Palace.

Kenyans online were quick to draw comparisons between this particular handshake and President Kenyatta’s famous handshake with Nasa leader Raila Odinga last month on the doorsteps of Harambee House.

The two leaders shocked the country with their show of unity which they sealed with a handshake in front of cameras, especially since they had not been seeing eye to eye after the divisive and hotly contested August 8, 2017 General Elections.

This is what Netizens had to say:

EDITOR’S NOTE: Earlier version indicated that President Kenyatta had met Prince Harry instead of Prince William. We regret the error.
