Boris Johnson got more than he bargained for when he tweeted about his chat with Kenya's new Foreign Minister

All Boris Johnson wanted to do was send a friendly tweet updating the world on his recent conversations with his new Kenyan counterpart, Monica Juma. What he got was a barrage of replies questioning unequal trade agreements and colonial reparations.

Johnson, the UK's Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs minister is not the most popular person on the best of days especially in Kenya where  parts of the political divide have not forgotten his "early" congratulatory message to President Kenyatta after his victory in the country's second election in 2017.

According to the UK’s Telegraph at the time, the move by Mr Johnson may have proved messy to the British High Commissioner in Kenya Mr Nicholas Hailey who was perhaps waiting for ‘the most opportune time’ to react to the situation in Kenya.
