Kenyans on Twitter never seem to run out of ideas and this time around they decided to have some fun with the news that US President Barack Obama will be skipping Kenya in his upcoming Africa trip.
President Barack Obama will leave on a first African tour next month, visiting Senegal, Tanzania and South Africa.
The White House did not state why Obama will not visit Kenya but the fact that President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto are facing crime against humanity cases at the International Criminal Court could be the reason.
Kenyans on Twitter shrugged it off with their usual creative hashtags. This time it was #whyobamawillskipkenya. Here are some of the funny tweets.
