Kenyans ask Liberian President George Weah to keep off Uhuru's advice

'Uhuru Kenyatta is a fraud' - lamented one Kenyan

Former football star George Weah was last month declared the winner of Liberia's presidential elections after trouncing his opponent Joseph Boakai with more than 60% of the vote.

News of his victory was received with praise by the football fraternity as well as high-profile world leaders.

And among the heads-of-state to commend Mr Weah was Kenya's President Uhuru Kenyatta who described his victory as a "triumph for democracy."

"President-elect Weah’s victory is a triumph of democracy. Kenya will stand with Liberia, for we believe that Pan-African cooperation will win every African the prosperity and freedom they deserve. I look forward to working with President Weah in the service of those ideals," Mr. Kenyatta's tweet read.

Mr Weah later acknowledged the Kenyan President's congratulatory message and affirmed his commitment towards the development of Africa.

But it was this acknowledgment tweet that sparked a myriad of reactions from Twitter users mostly Kenyans who asked him to 'keep off' President Kenyatta.

They argued that Mr. Kenyatta was ironical in talking about prosperity and freedom yet he was at the centre of a 'fraudulent presidential election' in his country.

Indeed they did not mince their words gauging from the reactions below:

George Weah is set to be sworn in as Liberia's President on January 22.
