The delegation that accompanied President Uhuru Kenyatta to Paris has exposed the ugly side of Kenya’s diplomacy after it emerged that the empty bowl was courtesy of their gross misdemeanours.
Reports indicate that a senior official in tow could barely be recognised by the hosts and blundered further by turning up for the dinner an hour late. Things got worse as they took to the famous streets of Paris with mean-looking bodyguards, shopping until the wee hours much to the bewilderment of the citizens.
The mishaps are said to have infuriated their hosts who contemptuously slammed the doors and rejected the appeal for loans and deals. Of course, the feuding and instability in Kenya didn’t help.
