Netizens taunt Ruto’s body language during President’s address
As President Uhuru Kenyatta addressed the nation from State House, Nairobi after the Supreme Court ruling, all eyes were on his deputy William Ruto.
Mr Ruto stood behind the President with his hands clasped in front and often starred on the floor.
His body language made him a subject of online discussions as Kenyans on Twitter tried to decode his body language.
Ruto who was at the end of the address referred to by President Kenyatta gave him a pat on the back and laughed at the statement that he too was ready for the repeat elections.
Here is what some Kenyans had to say about Ruto’s demeanour:
