President Uhuru Kenyatta is feeling the internet’s wrath
Following the recent military coup in Mali led by army colonel Assimi Goita, African head of states held a virtual meeting on Thursday evening and demanded the immediate release of detained President Boubacar Keita and the senior members of his administration, including Prime Minister Boubou Cissé.
President Uhuru condemned the coup and urged for a “speedy, peaceful and democratic” resolution of the crisis. However, Uhuru sentiments didn’t sit nicely with netizens as he received ample backlash. Over the past few hours, social media has reacted with “mean” comments.
The coup leaders had pledged a political transition and new elections within a “reasonable time” while but Mr Keita fate still remains unknown.
Check out some of the reactions below ;
As African citizens,we applaud and commend the Malian people and military!
Taking despots and dictators down! One at a time!

Mr. Kenyatta is speaking for himself as an individual. We in Kenya are fully behind the Mali people.
