Is Uhuru Kenyatta So Desperate to Shake Obama’s Hands?
At the Mandela memorial in South Africa where current and former world leaders congregated to pay tribute to Mandela, ICC suspect Uhuru Kenyatta accidentally met President Barack Obama on the corridors soon after Obama gave a speech at the memorial.
Uhuru’s minders are said to have quickly brought him close to Obama so that he could shake hands with a man who has been avoiding Uhuru like leprosy. According to a source, Uhuru stretched his hands towards Obama and after a few seconds of hesitation, Obama reluctantly stretched out his hand as First Lady looked on in anticipation. The matter could have ended there and no one could have known how desperate Uhuru has become on the question of contacts with Obama had Uhuru’s minders rested their case there.
As the accidental hand shake was in progress, one of Uhuru’s minders secretly seized on the opportunity to take a photo with his mobile phone but instead of just taking it easy, the Uhuru media team did what is said to have shocked the White House.
Within ten minutes, the team published the photo on Facebook “to show that Uhuru had a scheduled contact with the US President” and that the two “had fruitful discussions” on developments in Kenya. A bump-into at the corridors had been converted into a “meeting” where “discussions” even took place. This is pathetic. The big question which Kenyans have to ask themselves is this: Is Uhuru Kenyatta all that desperate to have contacts with Obama?
