Kenyans get cheeky in wake of Zuma, Desalegn resignations
The resignation of Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn and South African President Jacob Zuma has evoked a witty response from Kenyans online.
The two resignations hours apart sparked a discussion on Twitter about African leaders’ penchant to hang on to power despite pressure to resign from their citizens.
Some shared a photo of President Uhuru Kenyatta meeting with the two former leaders.
A cheeky tweep suggested Kenyans could donate one of their presidents (Raila or Uhuru) to countries experiencing presidential vacuum.
Here are some of the reactions.
We can donate one of our presidents to South Africa, yes?
So do we give them Uhuru or Raila?

Desalegn: What do you tell them when they want you to resign?
Uhuru: ??? wait a minute! Don’t tell me you can even think of it. In Africa that is all they want; us to resign.
Zuma: Guys guys! Mine is even serious! They tell me everyday to resign!
