The unusual habit taking root in Uhuru & Ruto’s private meetings

Where is the problem?

The meetings attended by high ranking officials and sometimes foreign delegates have formed a topic of discussion on social media as Kenyan heads have been spotted casually attending the meeting with no notebooks.

Meetings which are mostly synonymous to gatherings where ideas are shared and decisions made require some form of note taking by those in attendance.

But Kenyan leaders have seen no need to carry any notebooks.

In a series of photos taken during these official meetings, Kenyan leaders have been outscored by foreign delegates who proceed to the meeting armed with a pen and notebook ready to document important points during the discussions.

Probably one could say that a notebook is a traditional way of taking notes but from the photos Kenyan leaders are not seen with their smartphones taking notes.

Reactions

This comes days after President Kenyatta held an all-men meeting meant to discuss the economy sparking outrage among Kenyans on social media.

Mr Kenyatta had gathered his team of economic advisers and development partners to discuss the future of the economy after the 2017 General Election.

Only three women were present at this meeting held at his Harambee House office but they did not have space at the main table.
